The Marcel A. Desautels Centre for Private Enterprise and the Law offers support for a research project on private enterprise, law and history through the CBHA/ACHA. Applicants are encouraged to think creatively in developing proposals that will result in a scholarly article that takes an historical perspective on a Canadian family controlled or other private business, and considers its intersections or relationship with the law. The field of study is open to any time period, but projects should consider businesses operating in a domestic, Canadian context.
The successful applicant will receive up to $1,000 to support the completion of the project. Academic support and oversight will be provided by an Academic Advisory Board drawn from the CBHA’s membership. The Research Fellowship is open to PhD students and postgraduate scholars at an early stage of their academic careers (within five years of completing their degrees).
The deadline for applications to the Desautels Research Fellowship is 28 February, 2023. Applicants should include a cover letter, detailed project proposal, and curriculum vitae to be sent to the CBHA Grants Committee, c/o Professor Dimitry Anastakis, University of Toronto, Department of History and Rotman School of Management, 100 St. George St. Toronto, ON, M5S 3G3. Enquires and applications can also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
