The Jackman Scholars-in-Residence Program (SiR) is an intensive 4-week residency in humanities and humanistic social-science research for upper-year undergraduates in the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, and life and physical sciences. Students live in residence while participating in faculty-led, research-focused workshops, excursions, and roundtable discussions.
In light of the evolving COVID-19 public health emergency, Scholars-in-Residence has re-imagined summer research activities for May 2020. No on-campus research involving undergraduates is currently permitted at the University of Toronto, which offers us an exciting opportunity for innovation and for the creation of new online research communities.
Virtual Scholars-in-Residence (V-SiR) will be a unique undergraduate research program that utilizes virtual collaboration and training tools to conduct online research. Each V-SiR research project will use the most appropriate online tools available to address the specific needs of the project. Participating scholars will each receive a $1,000 Jackman Scholars Award on completion of the program.
For more information, including a schedule of V-SiR 2020 events, please contact Yolanda Yao, Project Coordinator, OVPD.
