Riley Fellowship Supported Events

The H. Sanford Riley Fellowship in Canadian History


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 vigorous supporter of Canada's National History Society. The Fellowship is an integral component of the H. Sanford Riley Centre for Canadian History. 

The Department of History is responsible for the administration of the Riley Fellowship. The department’s Riley Fellowship Committee (RFC) selects the Riley Fellows, organizes and promotes Riley Lectures, and adjudicates applications for conference support.
