The NCURA Global Fellowship program is a joint initiative between NCURA and our global sister research administration societies. The Fellowship program has two underlying objectives: (i) the training of research administrators, and (ii) enhancing global research collaboration. 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 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 $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, identify best practices and local knowledge of the host institution, and to respect all appropriate organizational rules and cultural practices.
International research, and by default also international research administration, has become crucial in recent years both in the U.S. as well as outside the U.S. We therefore have restructured the NCURA Fellowship Program to consist of six (6) spots, with two (2) spots for each of the following categories: Early-Mid Career Research Administrator (up to 10 years experience), Senior Research Administrator (10+ years experience), International Research Administrator (Open to non-US applicants only).
