Fellowship Award Additional Information


For publicity purposes, Fellowship recipients grant permission to the Bank of Canada to publicly communicate their names and qualifications.

The Bank of Canada does not retain or claim ownership of, or exploitation rights to, intellectual property developed by the recipients. However, recipients are required to cite the Bank as a source of funding in any relevant publication that appears during the Fellowship period or that results from work done during the term of the award.

Change of Status

The recipient must notify the Bank of a change of status regarding his or her affiliation with the university.

Leave of Absence

With the agreement of the university concerned, recipients would continue to be eligible for the Fellowship Award during a paid sabbatical year.

The award may be discontinued at any time during its five-year term in the event that the recipient no longer works at a Canadian university.

The award may be suspended during a recipient's unpaid leave of absence and may be resumed upon the recipient's return to a tenured or tenure-track faculty position at a Canadian university. However, if the recipient is in his/her final year of Fellowship, the Fellowship cannot be resumed and will be discontinued. In the event the recipient is on an unpaid leave of absence, the recipient must confirm to the Bank by the end of January if he/she is returning to a tenured or tenure-track faculty position at a Canadian university. If the Fellowship is discontinued or suspended (maximum a year), the Bank may ask for repayment of some or all of the unused funds.

Exit Interviews

The Recipient agrees to participate in an interview at the end of his/her term to provide feedback about the program and on his/her experience as a Fellow.


The Bank of Canada endorses the “Tri-Agency Framework: Responsible Conduct of Research” adopted by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) with respect to integrity in research and scholarship and non-discrimination. The Bank may discontinue a Fellowship at any time if it decides that a recipient has engaged in activities inconsistent with this Framework.
