Description of Program

The Scholars in Residence program at Egale Canada is a unique program that enables partnerships between academic experts and Egale. Through the Scholars in Residence program, Egale will host an academic expert for one year with the provision of a course release for the scholar. During their tenure, the scholar will lend their expertise to the organization and research team and contribute to national and international community-based research projects with, by, and for 2SLGBTQI people. The scholar will also engage the Egale staff team in critical discourse regarding issues impacting the 2SLGBTQI population, and the scholars will have Egale’s support in conducting community-based research.

The Current Call

Are you a critical scholar with expertise relating to the economic inequality of 2SLGBTQI people, with a special focus on wage gaps, poverty, the economic cost(s) of homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia?

We are looking for a Scholar in Residence to support our ongoing and upcoming projects and our organizational objectives, including staff professional development and learning opportunities. The term is September 01, 2023, to August 31, 2024. Funding is available for scholars in the form of course releases. Scholars must be affiliated with a Canadian post-secondary institution. 

Remuneration and Time Commitment

Scholars in Residence are not considered full-time employees of Egale, but will be provided remuneration through course releases. Over the one-year term as Scholar, you will be provided with a course release in Fall semester and Winter semester with the support and approval of their institution. The time commitment is approximately 5 hours per week for the one-year term.


Eligible scholars are those who have current affiliation (rank of assistant, associate, or full professor) at a Canadian post-secondary institution, in a relevant department or faculty. Selection criteria include scholarly expertise as it relates to the focus outlined above (I.e., economic inequality of 2SLGBTQI people).
