ROBERT FRANKLIN CLARK GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP IN UKRAINIAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO
The Robert Franklin Clark Graduate Fellowship in Ukrainian Language and Literature was created in 1997, the result of a three-way partnership between CFUS, the University of Toronto’s matching funds program and the Ontario Opportunities Trust Fund. Each institution contributed $100,000 to create the Robert F. Clark Endowment Fund for a total value of $300,000. This Endowment was intended to be used specifically to provide for the R. F. Clarke Fellowship in Ukrainian Language and Literature at the University of Toronto. The Fund is administered by the University of Toronto.
The purpose of the Fellowship is to support a Master’s or PhD candidate pursuing studies in the field of Ukrainian language and/or literature at the University of Toronto.
The amount of the award is approximately $15,000 annually (in recent years, the amount has been somewhat less than $15,000 due to the overall economic and financial crises which have been impacting on universities as well as the lower annual earnings of the Fund).
Generally, the award is made to a single student although it may be apportioned to several students under certain circumstances.
The Robert F. Clark Fellowship in Ukrainian Language and Literature is awarded and administered in accordance with the University of Toronto’s policy on student awards.
The criteria for the selection of the recipient of the award are based on the applicant’s record of academic excellence and financial need. Between Master’s and PhD candidates of equal economic eligibility and scholastic merit, priority is given to PhD candidates. The award is made by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies upon the recommendation of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures.
A description of the Fellowship is printed in the University of Toronto’s School of Graduate Studies Calendar and other university materials relating to scholarships.
