  • Doctoral students enrolled in a Canadian university are eligible to apply.
  • We welcome applications from students in diverse disciplines addressing issues of history education, including but not limited to Education, History, Museum Studies and Public History programs. Students may propose to visit a department within the same discipline as their own (for example, a Faculty of Education at a different university), or with a department in another discipline (for example, an Education student may propose to visit a History Department or Museum Studies program at another university).
  • Students should clearly indicate the ways their research pertains to issues in history education. Research that explores the theory and practice of history education in Canada, or in comparative contexts, is preferred.
  • Priority will be given to visits between Quebec and other provinces. Successful applicants must sign up as a member on THEN/HiER’s website, .
