The H. Sanford Riley Fellowship in Canadian History promotes public engagement with the study of
Canada’s history at the University of Winnipeg and in the wider community. The Fellowship is made
possible by a generous endowment from H. Sanford (Sandy) Riley of Winnipeg, an enthusiastic student
of Canada’s history. He is a former Chancellor of the University of Winnipeg and a key supporter of
Canada's National History Society. The Fellowship is a component of the H. Sanford Riley Centre for
Canadian History.

The University of Winnipeg is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and recognizes that a
diverse staff/faculty benefits and enriches the work, learning and research environments, and is
essential to academic and institutional excellence. We welcome applications from all qualified
individuals and encourage women, members of racialized communities, Indigenous persons, persons
with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity to confidentially
self-identify at time of application. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however,
Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be
given priority.
