The Marta Danylewycz Memorial Fund was established with the primary objective of continuing, promoting, and supporting work in women's history from a feminist perspective. More specifically, the Fund supports historical research at the doctoral level in the following areas: women and ethnicity, women and religion, women and work, women and social reform, women and education, women and family. The Fund is administered by the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women-Institut canadien de recherches sur les femmes (CRIAW-ICREF), Ottawa, Canada.
This award consists of one grant of $2,000. Each project is evaluated by members of a special jury, whose decisions are final. No individual critiques can be provided. If no submissions meet the jury's requirements, the grant money will be returned to the Fund for a possible double award the following year.
Doctoral students who are in the latter stages of their thesis or dissertation are eligible to apply. There are no citizenship restrictions as long as the applicant is attached to a Canadian institution for the duration of the grant, or the research has application in the Canadian environment. Applications can be made in either official language, English or French.
The subject matter of the research project must support the aims of the Fund, as described above.
The research project must be well-defined in terms of objectives, implementation, and expected results, and must reflect good scholarship.
