Junior Fellows

Junior Fellows

Massey College aims to be an inclusive, interdisciplinary and culturally diverse community. It is a residence for University of Toronto graduate students or those obtaining professional degrees from Canada and abroad.

Junior Fellows are an integral part of the Massey College community, and represent a wide range of disciplines, interests and backgrounds.

The college offers an extraordinary experience by providing a caring community that allows all members to expand their horizons academically, socially and culturally. What makes us unique is the question we ask all applicants: “what will you bring to the life of the College?”

Along with members of the Lionel Massey Fund, Junior Fellows elect and organize committees and events, including movie nights, fundraisers for local organizations, conferences and panels, guests speakers, book clubs and parties (they even run their own literary journal!)

Eligibility: Junior Fellows are full-time students at the University of Toronto, either registered with the School of Graduate Studies or pursuing professional degrees such as law, medicine or dentistry.

Election is for one year. Junior Fellows may apply for re-election in each of four succeeding years; residence, however, cannot exceed a total of three years.

For potential residents of the College, residence and meal fees do apply. For non-residents, there is an annual fee to participate in the College.

Massey College has 60 spots for resident Junior Fellows and 85 for non-residents. Each year, around 20 spots open up for resident and 60-70 for non-resident Junior Fellows.

Applications for the 2020/2021 academic year will open on February 3rd, 2020. For applications instructions, frequently asked questions and information on available bursaries, please see Junior Fellow Applications.
