We’re thrilled to hear that Dr. Marcia Ostashewski has been awarded a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC)!
Dr. Ostashewski was a KIAS Postdoctoral Fellow in 2012, and worked on a very interdisciplinary project including: Ukrainian dance, culture in Cape Breton, Aboriginal/Ukrainian encounters and relations on the prairies of Canada. Clearly all the hard work is being recognized!
Dr. Ostashewski will be the Cape Breton University CRC in Communities and Cultures and her award is for $100,000 annually for five years. In addition to the CRC funding, both researchers will receive funding through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), with Ostashewski receiving close to $500,000.
