Administration Support Program (UASP) since 2002 with funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The UASP’s Fellowship in Research Management supports the development of university research management capacity at select public universities in Eurasia and Africa. We are pleased to announce that a new application cycle has opened.
Competitive applicants should be mid- to senior-level research managers or hold another university position related to research management (e.g. research administrators, principal investigators, accountants).
The program has two main components:
1. Fellowships in Research Management (6 weeks in the United States): Four weeks are spent collaborating with a research management counterpart at a US university, observing practice and building a Research Administration Implementation Plan (practical workplan for implementing a research management practice or reform at the home institution) or a Comparison Study (outline of key aspects of the observed practice and its applicability to the home context). The university placement is book-ended by two weeks of intensive training and facilitated reflection in Washington, DC.
2. Grants and Post-Fellowship Engagement: UASP Fellows are eligible to compete for grants to support follow on activity to kickstart a research administration project in their home institutions, to attend relevant national and international conferences or to provide a research grant to a faculty member from their home institution.
