The 2021 HREC Research Grants Competition is intended to support research that expands our knowledge and understanding of the Holodomor; publication and translation of research results; preservation of and increasing access to materials; and organization of and participation in academic forums. Examples of research that could be supported include the policies of foreign governments during collectivization and the Holodomor; the fate of various groups living in Ukraine (ethnic, social, etc.); diaspora communities and their kin in Soviet Ukraine; and the Holodomor at the national and sub-national levels (eg., oblasts, raions, villages). Grants to individuals will not exceed C$7,000.00, with most grants ranging from C$1,000.00 to C$3,000.00 in past years. HREC accepts proposals for larger collaborative projects that engage scholars and institutions from both in and outside Ukraine.

Visiting Scholar in Holodomor Studies

Petro Jacyk Program, CERES, University of Toronto / HREC

Deadline: March 15, 2021


Applications are being accepted for the Visiting Scholars Program through the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine at the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES), the University of Toronto for the 2021-2022 academic year. Each year the Petro Jacyk Program—in partnership with the Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC)—may support one scholar whose research relates to the Holodomor. Successful applicants benefit from interaction with not only scholars in the University of Toronto community but also those involved in HREC projects and have access to the archives of the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre, where HREC is located (a ten-minute walk from CERES), including unpublished eyewitness accounts of the Holodomor, as well as the extensive Holodomor microfilm collection from the Central State Archive of Popular Organizations (Kyiv) at the University of Toronto Library. They are invited to give a presentation on the topic of their research and are expected to take part in relevant scholarly events at CERES. As a rule, engagements will be scheduled during the fall and winter sessions, that is, between September and April.
