Editing Modernism in Canada


PhD Stipends

For 2014-15, EMiC offers 10-month stipends (June 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015) of $15,000 to doctoral students who are registered in a PhD program at one of the EMiC partner universities and who are engaged in research relevant to the project’s mandate: to produce critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors. Successful applicants are strongly encouraged to seek matching funds from their universities and external funding from granting agencies.

In offering these stipends, EMiC interprets its mandate in the broadest possible terms: that is, the stipends are not limited to masters and doctoral students involved in work on an EMiC print or electronic edition; on the contrary, they are open to any student engaged in doctoral research relevant to one or more of the three components of this project: literary modernism, scholarly editing, and the digital humanities. While EMiC interprets its mandate in the broadest possible terms, preference will be given to research projects most directly relevant to the task of producing critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors. Applicants proposing print or electronic editions of modernist texts should indicate whether they have obtained written permission from the estate. EMiC will require proof of that permission before it can release funds to successful applicants.

Previous recipients of PhD stipends can reapply for a second award. Such re-applications are not automatic renewals; requests for renewals will be adjudicated in the same manner as, and in competition with, new applications. EMiC will neither entertain applications for a third doctoral stipend nor award funding to students beyond the fifth year of their program.

EMiC will provide an allocation of $15,000 to the partner universities at which successful applicants are registered. EMiC co-applicants and collaborators will be responsible for ensuring that those funds are administered in keeping with the guidelines established by their respective universities.

PhD students must be supervised by an EMiC co-applicant or collaborator and enrolled at an EMiC partner institution. Before submitting an application for funding, students already enrolled in a graduate program at an EMiC partner institution must obtain a supervisor. EMiC cannot fund students supervised by faculty members who are not themselves project participants.

Successful PhD applicants are required to submit a report on their project immediately upon completion of the term of the award. Reports can be submitted online at the EMiC website.

The application deadline for 2014-15 is Wednesday, April 30th, 2014.
