Visiting University Scholar Program

A Western International Competition

This award is funded by Western International. Faculties are invited to nominate international scholars for short-medium term visits throughout the year. A maximum award of $3000 will be matched with funds provided by the host faculty.

Visiting scholars invited to Western under the Visiting University Scholar Program will receive the designation of “Western Fellow” during the period of their stay. This designation serves to provide enhanced recognition to visiting scholars at Western. It may also be included the visitor's curriculum vitae and should be used in all communication associated with the scholar's visit.
