Research Collaboration Fellowship

The YCAR Research Collaboration Fellowship exists to support intensive collaborations between a Faculty Associate of the Centre and one of their research partners at another research institution (university, NGO etc). The fellowship allows a collaborator (usually from Asia) to visit Toronto for the specific purpose of working on a research proposal, project or publication. The fellowship provides up to a maximum of C$4,000 in reimbursement for travel and accommodation expenses incurred by the visitor. Visitors will usually spend 1-3 months in Toronto. YCAR provides the visitor with a desk and library access for the duration of the fellowship.

Applications for a proposed visitor in the 2017.2018 year are due 26 May 2017 and should be submitted by the YCAR Faculty Associate making the nomination, not the proposed visitor.

A complete application file will consist of:
– the current CVs of both applicant and nominator
– a statement outlining the proposed collaborative work
– details of the planned output that will result from the Fellowship
– timeline of the proposed visit and output.

To submit an application, or for forther information, contact ycar@yorku.ca.
