The 2022 Fellowship Competition for TSAS Closing Gala


The 2022 Studentship Call for TSAS Gala Fellowship 

The Canadian Network for Terrorism, Security, and Society is celebrating the end of its SSHRC partnership grant with a gala workshop drawing together scholars, policy makers, and practitioners in the field of terrorism, security, and society. We invite graduate students and recent PhD graduates working in these fields to participate as Gala Fellows, as well as present their workshop in a special fellows' workshop. Please see below for full details and eligibility.


The TSAS Gala Fellowship brings together emerging scholars doing innovative work on the themes of terrorism, security, and society, in the context of the Canadian Network for Terrorism, Security and Society closing gala.

The theme of the gala conference is looking back at ten years of terrorism and security research in Canada, and forward to the next set of important questions at the intersection of research and policy.

Gala fellows will be full participants in the conference, act as rapporteurs, participate in networking events, and have an opportunity to get expert feedback on their research as part of a fellows’ workshop.

We invite applications from Master's, law, and PhD students and recent PhDs working on issues related to terrorism, security, and society, including terrorism and violent extremism, radicalization, security and counter-terrorism, countering violent extremism, and the societal impact and consequences of violent extremism.
