Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Doctoral Scholarships


DEADLINE TO APPLY: December 9, 2019


Each year, the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation rewards outstanding doctoral candidates who have been offered admission to, or are enrolled in year one, two, or three, of a social sciences and humanities program and who are doing research in areas related to one of the Foundation's four themes:


  • Human Rights and Dignity
  • Responsible Citizenship
  • Canada and the World
  • People and their Natural Environment


This award, the most prestigious of its type in Canada, has continuously attracted the very best scholars in the social sciences and humanities, individuals with a passion for public engagement and who are likely to become leading national and international figures.  Canadian citizens, permanent residents and foreign citizens are eligible to apply.


The value of the award is $60,000 per year (this includes an annual travel allowance of up to $20,000) for three years.


The internal University of Guelph deadline to apply online is December 9, 2019. While the Trudeau Foundation’s formal launch of the competition is not until November 15, and the application portal on their website is not yet available at the time of this e-mail, applicants are encouraged to get started on their applications right away.
