The CRRS offers a limited number of non-stipendary fellowships to scholars who are visiting or reside in the Toronto area, and who wish to make sustained use of the Centre’s library and resources. Fellowships include membership in the Victoria University Senior Common Room and free access to other University of Toronto libraries. All fellows are expected to participate in the activities of the CRRS, thereby sharing their knowledge and research with other scholars and students.
The CRRS welcomes inquiries from individuals who are interested in holding their SSHRC or other postdoctoral fellowships at the Centre.
Who may apply
Eligibility is usually restricted to faculty and other individuals who have completed their graduate training. In exceptional circumstances the CRRS will consider applications from ABD doctoral candidates. Such applicants should contact the Assistant to the Director before making a formal application.

Scholars who have been granted short-term Visiting Fellowships at the CRRS and are in need of financial assistance to cover travel costs to the Centre and/or living expenses while in residence may apply to the CRRS for a modest travel subsidy (up to 500 CAD). A maximum of two such subsidies are available in any given year; original receipts must be submitted.
To request consideration for this funding, please include a letter indicating financial need, complete with a brief budget, with your fellowship application.
