Nine Carleton University faculty members are the inaugural winners of the prestigious Carty Research Fellowships. These fellowships were recently established to provide seed funding to support innovative research initiatives and scholarly activities by faculty members who are within the first five years of their appointment at Carleton. Fellowships will be awarded annually.

"Originally, we had planned to fund four outstanding research proposals, however, we could not ignore the exceptional quality of the applications," states Feridun Hamdullahpur, Vice-President (Research and International). "Ultimately, we agreed to adjust the number for this year only. Six applicants will be funded fully at the requested amount and another three will be funded partially. We are extremely proud of all the winners and thank them for putting together excellent proposals."

Carleton University winners include:

  • Sarah Casteel, Department of English and Literatures

  • Sheryl Hamilton, Department of Law, and School of Journalism and Communication

  • Peter X. Liu, Department of Systems and Computing Engineering

  • Patrick Morin, School of Computer Science

  • Dawn Moore, Department of Law

  • Paul Nelles, Department of History

  • Banu Ormeci, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

  • George Rigakos, Department of Law

  • Ming Tiampo, School for Studies in Art and Culture: Art History

    A total of $4 million dollars was designated for the program from the endowment left to the University by the late E. Bower Carty, former public servant and philanthropist. The interest from this fund will be spent each year to support researchers.
