Call for Proposals: The David Edney Research Travel Award for Graduate Students

Graduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Science are invited to apply for the David Edney Research Travel Award, which will provide two winners with the opportunity to study and do research in Paris, France, for up to two months in the summer in a fully-equipped apartment owned by Queen’s alumnus, Professor David Edney.

The opportunity comes with a stipend of up to $1,900 to support expenses related to research, travel, and cultural experiences.


Two students will be selected on the basis of academic excellence, merit, and the quality of the proposal. The award will be available to funding-eligible Master’s- or PhD-level students enrolled in a graduate department or program in any Faculty of Arts and Science discipline. Successful applicants will be required to write a brief summary of the impact of the award on their research to be provided to the donor.

The successful applicants will be notified by January 25, 2019, and have access to the apartment for up to two months between May 1, 2019 and August 31, 2019.
