The NCURA-EF Fellowship program is a joint initiative between NCURA and the Eurasia Foundation. This new Fellowship program has two underlying objectives: (i) the training of research administrators, and (ii) enhancing research collaboration between the U.S. and Russia. This program is intended to reduce barriers to global research administration and create an administrative environment conducive to global research collaboration. There is an ever increasing amount of global research collaboration, and this fellowship hopes to create a pool of individuals who are able to interpret a multitude of various sponsor requirements and assist their institution with administrative compliance – from application submission through financial reporting and closeout.
The program will provide an opportunity for U.S.-based research administrators to travel to a Host Institution in Russia to undertake a program of mutual learning and knowledge exchange. NCURA will support up to USD$2,000 in travel costs, and Fellows are expected to pass on their experiences and knowledge of how research administration management operates at their institution, identify best practices and local knowledge of the host institution, and to respect all appropriate organizational rules and cultural practices.
