Established in 2017, IRVFs are designed to catalyze high quality collaborative and innovative research between visiting fellows and Education faculty. Visiting fellows are expected to spend a minimum of three weeks between September 2020 and May 2021 at UBC. It is expected that fellows will be internationally acclaimed scholars in their respective fields, as evident through track-records of research, scholarly publications, knowledge mobilization, major recognitions, and grant funding. It is also expected that the funds will act as a catalyst for subsequent collaborative research with UBC researchers beyond the time of their stay at UBC.
IRVF funds (up to $10,000 per award) may be used towards travel, accommodation, per diem expenses and research/meeting costs. Funds are for operating expenses and cannot be used to purchase computers or equipment. As a condition of the award, it is expected that visiting fellows will give at least one research talk (open to members of the University and general public).
The program’s terms of reference and instructions and the nomination form are available on the ORE website under the internal funding section: https://ore.educ.ubc.ca/research/funding/
