Universities Research Association, Inc. (URA) Visiting Scholars Award Program

Modified: January 18, 2017

The Visiting Scholars Award Program provides financial support for faculty and students to work at Fermilab for periods of up to one year. Proposed visits can range from attendance at conferences or summer schools held at Fermilab to year-long research stays. Support from this program can include transportation costs and local lodging expenses during a series of shorter visits or salary support during a longer visit.

Individual awardees may receive up to a maximum of $50,000 in any twelve-month period, with a lifetime maximum award total of $50,000 per individual.

Individual proposals may be submitted by researchers who are faculty, postdocs, or graduate students at URA-member universities doing research in areas such as high energy physics experiments, astrophysics, theory, accelerator physics, materials science, and computer science, related to the Fermilab mission.

Beginning with this award cycle, applications must be submitted online at the URA Visiting Scholars Program website. To register, please go to the VSP site.

DEADLINES: February 27, 2017 (spring cycle) and August 28, 2017 (fall cycle)
