Please be advised that the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation has recently relaunched a revised Trudeau Fellowship program. The Fellowship is being transformed from a program focused on individual research projects to one where its Fellows become agents of change, charged with developing the leadership capacities of its Scholars. In practice, this means that:
Fellows will be agents of change.
- The nature of Fellows’ work is changing. In a spirit of collective endeavour, their aim will now be to help Scholars achieve their full potential as engaged leaders, rather than realizing their own research projects.
- They will organize training around the theme of “Knowledge and Power”, sharing their own theoretical and practical understanding of leadership, and will also construct knowledge dissemination activities.
- They will work closely with Foundation Mentors, who will also have a new mission centered on training.
- Interested Candidates will now apply directly rather than being nominated by their universities.
Further information on the program is available at http://www.trudeaufoundation.ca/en/programs/fellows
As a result of these changes, Trudeau Fellowship nominations will no longer be supported through the Office of Research Services (which includes the SIRI Group) and will no longer be reviewed by the Major Awards Advisory Committee (MAAC). As well, an ORS Checklist will not be required.
