The Petro Jacyk Non-Residential Scholars Program will bring together Ukrainian scholars, public officials, advanced PhD students and public intellectuals to participate in regular virtual seminars moderated by a faculty member affiliated with the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine at the University of Toronto. Under “Ukrainian” we understand individuals who lived/worked in Ukraine and/or had primary affiliation with a Ukrainian institution at the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
During their engagement, non-residential fellows will work on and present their proposed scholarly/artistic/public policy-related project on a common theme related to the war and the rebuilding of Ukraine, with a focus on governance and the state, law and security, or culture and history.
They will receive feedback on their work in progress and will complete the project by the end of the engagement. Non-residential scholars will interact with the University of Toronto scholarly community and will have opportunities for professional development and public presentations of their work.
Virtual engagements will run September-December 2023 and January-April 2024. Preference will be given to applicants who are currently in Ukraine and/or intend to remain in Ukraine.
Successful applicants will receive a CAD $3,000 honorarium for their participation as well as virtual access to the rich resources of the University of Toronto Libraries.
Please send your complete application (filled in cover sheet, a one-page description of the proposed research project and your current CV) and any queries about the application process to firstname.lastname@example.org
