The YCAR Research Collaboration Fellowship exists to support intensive collaborations between a Faculty Associate of the Centre and a research collaborator 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. Preference will be given to existing collaborations who will benefit from meeting to complete a research output.
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 one to three months in Toronto. YCAR provides the visitor with a desk and library access for the duration of the fellowship. Preference may be given to applicants with existing collaborations at the time of application.
Applications for a proposed visitor in the 2022–23 academic year are due on Friday, 20 May 2022 by 16:00 EDT and should be submitted by the YCAR Faculty Associate making the nomination, not the proposed visitor.
A complete application file will consist of:
1) Current CV of both the applicant and nominator
2) A document (word or PDF) that includes the following:
- 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 further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
