About the Ashley Fellowship:

The Ashley Fellowship is funded by a bequest from the late Professor C.A. Ashley, long-time friend of Trent University and an enthusiastic proponent of the role that informal contacts of college life can play in the academic pursuits of the University. The Ashley Fellows, therefore, are visiting scholars who reside at one of Trent's residential Colleges for part of the year, delivering lectures and meeting with faculty and students.
