Submission Deadline: Connaught PhDs for Public Impact Fellowship Program

  • This event has passed.

April 1

Public impact scholarship, through the lens of higher education, is an inquiry that makes meaningful contributions to our local and global communities. Public impact spans science and technological innovation (e.g., artificial intelligence), as well as cultural innovation (e.g., art and societal movements), with the goal of social benefit. With that in mind, fellows from PhDs for Public Impact will focus on engaging the public through a scholarly agenda. This could involve a range of activities, from describing their work in a public forum (e.g., in a tweet, a personal blog post, a podcast interview, or an op-ed) to partnering with a school, community organization, or cultural institution (e.g., museum, theatre, archive) in an ongoing two-way exchange of knowledge and practices.

The School of Graduate Studies has launched the Connaught PhDs for Public Impact Fellowship Program as part of the core offerings of the Centre for Graduate Professional Development.
