Zaslove Scholarship in Humanities

Terms of Reference

The Humanities Graduate Endowment Fund was established at Simon Fraser University in 2011 through generous contributions from the Simons Foundation and the faculty and staff in the Humanities Department during the 2011 Campus Community Campaign. The interest earned on the Endowment will provide a scholarship for a graduate student in Humanities, to be known as the Zaslove Scholarship. Jerry Zaslove was an original member of the Humanities Program at SFU and helped lead its development into a Department. He also took a leading role in the establishment of the Institute for the Humanities at SFU and the J.S. Woodsworth Chair in Humanities. After the establishment of the MA program in Humanities at SFU in 2010, he continues to play a supportive role.

    1. a current unofficial SFU transcript
    2. a nomination letter describing the merits of each nominee.
  4. The scholarship will be awarded by the Dean of Graduate Studies on behalf of the Senate Graduate Awards Adjudication Committee.
