I would like to inform you of the following opportunity for funded graduate studies (M.A. thesis and non-thesis) at McGill University with connection to Greece that may appeal to undergraduate students that you know.

The Modern Greek studies program <http://www.mcgill.ca/history/undergraduate/moderngreek> at McGill functions within the History and Classical studies department<http://www.mcgill.ca/history/> .

The Program is currently involved in a series of collective research programs and has secured research funding from various sources. Most particular the Program has received funding for a major collaborative  digital humanities research project on Greek immigration to Canada<http://www.snf.org/en/grants/grantees/m/mcgill-university/mcgill-university/>.

Within this research project 3 MA scholarships of CAD 14,000 will be awarded for the academic year 2017-2018.

Potential candidates will need to apply through McGill’s History department. For more information on the History department’s graduate admissions process, please visit the graduate studies guide<http://www.mcgill.ca/history/graduate>.
The deadline for the application process is January 15th but candidates are encouraged to seek counsel beforehand regarding their project and to start uploading material early on, in order to avoid last-minute technical issues.

McGill’s competitive admission policy requires that students score the equivalent of a British upper-second class honours; North-American >3.3 depending on the Program;  and Greek over 7.5 (but this is also contingent on the candidate’s undergraduate program perceived difficulty).

The successful candidates will be expected to work on this Immigration project as part of their training and scholarship mandate.
However on top of this project, candidates with the following research topics relevant to the Program’s current research agenda will also be given consideration

- Educational networks in the Eastern Mediterranean 19th-20th c. (program of the French school in Athens, the Institut Universitaire of France, the Quebec and Canada research agencies)
- International interventionism and state formation in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean

Moreover, students of Greek citizenship can benefit from the following:

- the endowment by the S. Niarchos Foundation of two permanent graduate fellowships<https://www.mcgill.ca/gps/funding/students-postdocs/students/stavros-s-niarchos> for students of Greek origin pursuing a graduate degree at McGill

Knowledge of English and  Greek is required and knowledge of French  would be a considerable asset as it would allow for a smoother integration in both Montreal and the research partnerships.

For more information potential candidates may contact the Program director.
Thank you for spreading the word.
