The Eakin family generously supports the fellowship in memory of William R. Eakin, and each year one or two fellowships are awarded to scholars whose research advances the study of Canada.

“It is such an honour to have this privilege and opportunity,” said Murray. “The institute provides a welcoming environment where scholars at all stages of their careers, from undergraduate students to professors emeritus, share ideas. There are so many exciting events happening, it is impossible to attend each one but wonderful to be in such a dynamic spirit of intellectual engagement.”
