Modified: July 21, 2015

The Universities Research Association (URA) Visiting Scholars Program at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory was established in 2007 as a five-year program to support visits by researchers from the URA institutions to work at Fermilab for periods of up to one year in areas such as high energy physics experiments, astrophysics, theory, accelerator physics, materials science, and computer science.

Visits can range from attendance at Fermilab conferences and summer schools to year-long stays at the Lab. Support provided by the program may include the following: travel and local lodging expenses during a series of short visits or salary support and round trip travel expenses for an extended visit. Individual awards may be up to a maximum of $50,000 in any twelve-month period.

Eligibility

Students, postdocs, or faculty doing research in areas such as high energy physics experiments, astrophysics, theory, accelerator physics, materials science, and computer science, related to the Fermilab mission.

Application due date: August 31st, 2015
