Fulbright Canada Research Chairs (for visiting American scholars)

Fulbright Canada Research Chairs are hosted at the University of Regina (UofR) through a pre-arranged affiliation between Fulbright Canada and the University of Regina.  The specialized scholar will conduct research of importance to the university and be encouraged to engage in campus life and with students, faculty and the broader community. 

The UofR welcomes Fulbright scholars in a diverse range of disciplines across the natural sciences, humanities, social sciences, and applied fields, including interdisciplinary exploration.  The Visiting Chair will be hosted by the appropriate research centre and/or academic department and will influence leading edge practice, develop partnerships, as well as contribute to knowledge generation and knowledge transfer activities. The Chair will have opportunities to deliver lectures to students, the campus community, the general public, and otherwise support and contribute to the rich research culture at the University of Regina.

Affiliating with one or more of the research strengths below, the Chair will have the opportunity to fully engage with the UofR’s robust research enterprise which spans 10 faculties, two academic units, dozens of academic departments, and 18 research centres and institutes.  With more than 400 scholars actively engaged in cutting-edge research, the chair-holder will develop networks and access important resources across our campus to further academic pursuits.
