Known as a leader in cross-border governance and innovation, the Cascadia region offers an incredible opportunity for border scholars to engage in globally relevant research in a beautiful natural landscape. The region spans the Canada – U.S. border between British Columbia and Washington State, and is situated between the Cascade Mountain Range and the islands of the Salish Sea.
Fellowship applicants can request up to 3-month residencies, based at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, and/or at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia. There is one fellowship available in 2019.
As a fellow, you will be expected to:
• Conduct work at one or both host universities
• Participate actively in activities in both host programs
• Deliver at least one public seminar or lecture on your research
• Publish a report or article, and/or organize a public event, to discuss the Cascadia or Salish Sea border region
• Acknowledge both host programs in all publications arising from the fellowship and notify the programs of any presentations, books, or articles for inclusion in our databases and communications
Applications will be vetted by an interdisciplinary and international review committee made up of teams from both host universities. The committee will make the final selection based on the academic merit of the proposal, the view of the referees, and the applicant’s record of academic achievement or contribution to border policy and research.
If you have questions about the fellowship or submission process, please email Natalie Baloy (Natalie.Baloy@wwu.edu) and Nicole Bates-Eamer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
