Fermilab: URA Visiting Scholars Program

Modified: July 27, 2016

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.

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.

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 are eligible to apply for this award.  Deadline for proposals is August 29th. More information is available on the program website here.
