The NCURA Fellowship programs are a joint initiative between NCURA and our sister research administration organizations as well as between our U.S. Regions and the International Region. The Fellowship programs have two underlying objectives: (i) the training of research administrators, and (ii) enhancing global research collaboration. These programs are intended to reduce barriers to global research administration and create an administrative framework conducive to global research collaboration. There is an ever increasing amount of global research collaboration, and these Fellowships aim to create a pool of individuals who are able to interpret a multitude of various sponsor requirements and assist their institution with administrative compliance on a global scale – from application submission through financial reporting and closeout.
These Fellowship programs will provide an opportunity for research administrators to travel to another country's research organization and to immerse themselves in a program of mutual learning and knowledge exchange. NCURA will support up to USD $3,000 in travel costs, and Fellows are expected to pass on their experiences and knowledge of how research administration management operates at their institution, to identify best practices and the local knowledge of their Host Institutions, and to respect all appropriate organizational rules and cultural practices.
