The BPRI is pleased to announce the launch of a Cross-Border Research Fellowship program, held in conjunction with our partners at the University of Victoria. Please see the announcement below and share with those who may be interested.


Cross-Border Research Fellowship

The Border Policy Research Institute at Western Washington University and the Borders in Globalization SSHRC Research Program at the Centre for Global Studies at the University of Victoria invite emerging scholars and policy professionals to apply for a Visiting Research Fellowship. This joint appointment between two universities with established border studies programs offers a unique opportunity to conduct cross-border, policy-relevant research in the Cascadia border region. Known as a leader in cross-border governance and innovation, the Cascadia region offers an incredible opportunity for border scholars to engage in globally relevant research in a beautiful natural landscape. The region spans the Canada – U.S. border between British Columbia and Washington State, and is situated between the Cascade Mountain Range and the islands of the Salish Sea. Fellowship applicants can request up to 6-month residencies, based at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, and/or at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.

Applications are due December 15, 2017. To submit your application, visit tinyurl.com/crossborderfellowship. If you have questions about the fellowship or submission process, please email Natalie Baloy (Natalie.Baloy@wwu.edu) and Nicole Bates-Eamer (nbeamer@uvic.ca).
