The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is pleased to announce the 2012 Quebec Junior Scholar Program. A junior scholar from Quebec will be selected to carry out advanced policy-oriented research and writing designed to bridge the gap between the academic and policy communities.

This competition is open to Canadian citizens resident in Quebec and currently attending Quebec universities. Candidates must be currently pursuing archival and other research on issues related to Quebec-U.S. relations, Canada-U.S. relations, or on a U.S. policy issue.

Competition for the Quebec Junior Scholars Program is open to anyone currently pursuing a Ph.D., presently working on a doctoral dissertation, as well as those who have recently completed a doctoral dissertation.

The Junior Scholar must be able to hold a valid passport and J-1 visa and is required to have health insurance; the Wilson Center can suggest insurance companies that can provide the appropriate health insurance.

Applicants must be proficient in both written and spoken English in order to take full advantage of the National Archives, the Library of Congress, Presidential Libraries, and other research opportunities in the United States.
