According the Munk Centre website, The Bissell-Heyd Fellowships are intended to:
engage current Assistant/Associate Professors at the University of Toronto in the work of CSUS by providing them with resources to further research that is connected to the enterprise of American Studies, and to give them a platform from which to disseminate or showcase that research.
Professor Lee began the fellowship in 2016.
