The Scholars-in-Residence (SiR) program is an intensive 4-week residency in interdisciplinary humanities and humanistic social-science research for upper-year undergraduates, that was created at Victoria College.
SiR 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 SiR will live in residence for four weeks during the month of May and work in small teams on one of 20 research projects, each led by a professor.
Students share meals and group activities including multidisciplinary workshops on research methodologies, standards, protocol, and professional communication; excursions to archives, museums, and cultural events; and talks featuring professionals such as lawyers, policy-makers, and documentary filmmakers that highlight research-intensive career trajectories.
The student application period is open January-February and the application application form is available on the Jackman Humanities Institute website.
