Visiting Scholars Program Awardees

The Visiting Scholars Program has been a flagship URA Program for over a decade supporting the faculty and staff of URA member institutions to conduct research at Fermilab, America’s premier particle physics and accelerator laboratory. The Program has awarded close to $7.4 million since it was established in 2007. Funding for the program is awarded annually twice a year in the spring and fall.
