    Administrative history

    The Ashley Fellowship was established at Trent University in 1976 with a bequest from the late Charles Allan Ashley. Proceeds from the endowment are used to bring a visiting scholar to reside in one of the university’s five colleges in order to participate in lectures, seminars and informal contacts with students and faculty. Those eligible to receive the fellowship are persons who have made significant achievements in their field. They do not necessarily hold an academic appointment, but are required to contribute broadly to the academic and collegiate life of the University.
