UVic Libraries is running the Lowens-Libraries Fellowship Program again in 2023, with applications due on November 15. With the deadline approaching, I would be grateful for your support promoting the program in your networks. To that end, please find attached the digital slide and below an email blurb for circulation. Next week Christine and I will be hosting two information sessions for prospective applicants (links for registration are included below).
The program is open to all UVic undergraduate and graduate students from any discipline. Student fellows undertake an independent research or creative project using materials from Special Collections and University Archives. In support of this work, student fellows attend workshops, are mentored by library and faculty members, and receive a $1, 000 award.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this program, and thanks, in advance, for your support.
