Application for the Vice Chancellor’s Research Scholarships for International Students in UK – 2020/2021. Entry is now open at the Dalhousie University in UK.
The intention of the Izaak Walton Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship program is to attract recently graduated scholars (within the past two years) of superior research ability to Dalhousie University, and to provide the recipients with the opportunity to establish themselves as productive members of the academic community. Approximately 5 new fellowships are awarded annually. The fellowships are valued at up to $45,000 annually including full benefits and a travel allowance for transportation to and from Halifax, a one-time research allowance ($3,000) and a conference travel grant ($1,000).
Dalhousie University is internationally known as one of North America’s most welcoming universities. Founded in 1818, we’re one of Canada’s oldest universities, attracting more than 18,800 students from around the world. The university blends transformative academic programs with pioneering research on Canada’s East Coast.
The Scholarships are one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world. The aim of the program is to create a global network of future leaders committed to improving the lives of others.
DALHOUSIE POSTDOCTORAL PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY
Scholars are selected on the following criteria:
- There are no restrictions regarding the nationality of applicants, but successful candidates must meet all Canadian Immigration requirements.
- The intention of the Izaak Walton Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship program is to attract recently graduated scholars (within the past two years) of superior research ability to Dalhousie University, and to provide the recipients with the opportunity to establish themselves as productive members of the academic community. The doctoral degree is understood to be a degree awarded primarily for the completion of independent research which is publishable in the normal, refereed scholarly manner that is characteristic of a particular discipline. Those persons who meet the above qualification, but hold a permanent academic position to which they will return, will not, as a rule, be considered in this competition. Exceptions may be made in the case of individuals who, for example, are substantially changing their field of research or who come from countries in which immediate employment is guaranteed to all competent PhD holders. Applicants are not required to have completed their doctorate at the time of application; however, they must do so prior to taking up the fellowship. There are no restrictions regarding the nationality of applicants, but successful candidates must meet all Canadian Immigration requirements.
Since these Fellowships are intended to attract new scholars to Dalhousie, those scholars already at Dalhousie are not eligible to apply. You are not eligible to apply if you:
a) hold a PhD or JSD degree from Dalhousie or are currently completing a PhD or JSD degree at Dalhousie.
b) have held previously, or hold as of the application deadline (December 15), an academic or research appointment of any kind at Dalhousie or King’s College.
c) received your doctoral degree prior to January 2016. Questions of eligibility for these Fellowships are decided by the Associate Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies, to whom any inquiries may be directed. If a Fellow holds another award valued at less than the Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship, the external award will be supplemented to the full Killam value as an “Honourary Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship”.
- Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
