2018 Trudeau Fellows



Every year the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation selects up to five fellows who have set themselves apart through their research achievements, creativity and social commitment. The fellows are selected in light of their productivity, their innovation, and their communication and engagement.

Trudeau fellows are public intellectuals who have demonstrated the capacity to propose creative solutions to important issues. They reach beyond disciplinary boundaries to come up with innovative ideas and they are deeply committed to engaging in public debate. Fellows are appointed for three years. Candidates must be active in the social sciences and humanities and must work in an area related to one or more of the Foundation’s four themes: Human Rights and Dignity; Responsible Citizenship; Canada in the World; and People in their Natural Environment.

Nominations must be submitted either by a Trudeau Fellow, or by a Canadian institution. To discuss institutional nomination, please consult the University of Toronto contact listed below, who can direct you to your divisional awards coordinator.
