Funding & Awards

Invited International Distinguished Visitor Fund

Sponsored by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Principal’s Office, the Invited International Distinguished Visitor Fund provides opportunities for UBC faculty to invite international colleagues to visit UBC Okanagan and engage with the campus community and share their research and expertise. Two competitions per year are held for funding of $5,000 to support visits by international scholars to UBC Okanagan.

Applications can be submitted to the Office of Research Services at any time for consideration at the subsequent review (in February or October). For more information, contact Raina Reddecliff at the Okanagan Campus International Office.
