The Centre for Studies in Religion and Society at UVic offers fellowships ($5000 plus a private office for a year) to people in the thesis or dissertation phases of their graduate programs. Visits of less than a year are also possible.
These fellowships will allow students to be part of a vital interdisciplinary intellectual and social space in which they can focus on their writing. Over the last 25 years, we have been fortunate to host visiting graduate students from many other universities. Now, we are able to offer some funding to help support visiting students interested in completing their writing within a unique scholarly environment.
Most applicants would already have external funding from SSHRC or their home university. So, our funding would not cover all expenses, but it should make a significant contribution. The deadline for applications is the middle of November, 2017 and the fellowships would begin sometime after spring, 2018.

Students interested in this opportunity should contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org), or my colleague Sally Lin (email@example.com).

Topic 3: “Islamic Activists in Exile: Europe, Middle East and South-Asia”
This research project will associate one post-doctoral researcher with CAS researcher Giedre Sabaseviciute.
Description: Candidates will be expected to contribute to the project on the contemporary exiled Islamic activists in European, Middle Eastern and South-Asian cities.

Possible research topics include but are not restricted to 1- circulation of ideas, norms and activism through human networks; 2- patterns of activist network formation; 3- relationship between the exiled activists and their host countries; 4- continuities and ruptures in individual trajectories of activism. Candidates are expected to have conducted their doctoral research in one of the regions covered by the project (The Gulf, Turkey, South-Asia), to be proficient of one of its languages (Turkish, Arabic, Malay), and have an important knowledge of the fieldwork. Interdisciplinary approach is preferred, as well as some experience in ethnographic and biographical research, media studies, and discourse analysis.
