Hewton and Griffin Funding Awards to Support Archival Research in 2018

The Friends of the Archives at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), dedicated to the history of Canadian psychiatry, mental health and addiction, have established two endowment funds.  These funds annually provide funding in memory of their late colleagues, Ms. E.M. (Lil) Hewton and Dr. J.D.M. (Jack) Griffin, O.C.

The purpose of these funding awards is to provide financial assistance to students, and others not necessarily associated with an academic institution, who propose to undertake archival research on an aspect of the history of mental health or addiction in Canada.  The FOCA board at its discretion may approve awards to a maximum of $2,500 each.

There is no application form.  Candidates are invited to submit a letter of intent not exceeding 500 words, together with a budget and résumé, not later than November 30, 2017.  These research awards are conditional on the recipients agreeing to submit progress reports within one year, and a final report including a financial synopsis within two years of receiving their financial allocation.

For examples of archival research projects (formerly “Bursaries”) previously awarded, please refer to that feature as included in the Spring editions of our past years’ newsletters, indexed at:
