The Robert and Moira Sansom Ideas Foundation was established in 2013 with the intention to create a Graduate Student Scholarship for Studies in the History of Ideas, granting $10,000 each year in support of the work of the recipient.

The scholarship is intended to support work in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Multiple scholarships (of $10,000) may be awarded in any given year.

Before starting your application, be sure to use the preview application form to develop your answers first as you will not be able to save and return to the online form.

Please note: you’ll be asked to upload a letter of application. This document should be no more than two pages in length, and should outline your research interests and proposed course of study (including the institution where you wish to hold the award).

Also, note: the scholarship applicant is responsible for being aware of any conditions or conflicts that may arise with their pre-existing funding before they submit an application.

Are you a previous recipient of this scholarship who wishes to renew? If so, we request that you use a different submission format (in place of the application form accessed below). A scholarship may be renewed, although new applications will be given first priority. Please submit the following two items to the Award Trustees – Graduate Student Scholarship for Studies in the History of Ideas at grants@lcf.on.ca by March 1, 2022: 

1. A letter of application that includes a summary of your progress and achievements since the award was granted, as well as justification for an extension of funding.

2. A letter from (and sent directly by) your supervisor stating why renewal is important in your case.
