Spring 2015 URA Visiting Scholars Program at Fermilab

Faculty members interested in submitting a Universities Research Association (URA) Visiting Scholars proposal must do so by the spring deadline of Monday, March 30, 2015.

The 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 Universities Research Association, Inc. institutions to work at Fermilab for periods of up to one year. URA renewed the program for an additional five years in 2011. Resources for this program are made available by the 89 URA member institutions, each of which contributes $5,000 a 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 12-month period.
