Victoria College, in partnership with the Jackman Humanities Institute, announces an immersive 4-week residency in humanities and social- science research for 3rd- and 4th-year undergraduates. The program provides students with an opportunity to acquire advanced research skills and experience while collaborating with an interdisciplinary and intellectually vibrant community of peers, professors, and research professionals. Students selected for the Scholars-in-Residence Program will live in residence at Victoria College May 2-27, 2016 and work in small teams on one of four humanities and social-science projects, each led by a professor. In addition, they will take part in multidisciplinary workshops on such topics as research methodologies, standards, protocol, and professional communication. To participate in the Program, eligible students must apply by March 15 and be selected to work on one of the 2016 research projects.
The Scholars-in-Residence Program provides students with an intensive summer research experience supervised by University of Toronto faculty. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to contribute to original research projects, develop research skills, participate in enrichment activities (including pre-professional workshops and cultural programming), and build supportive relationships with peers and professors.
The Program offers a number of benefits intended to allow students to participate in the full range of activities.
