Early Career Visiting Scholars Program

The Glenn Regehr Global Networking & Visitor Fund was established from a generous donation from Glenn Regehr. The fund is designed to support networking initiatives between scholars from the health professions education community and members of CHES. From this fund, CHES has developed the Early Career Visiting Scholars Program (ECVSP) to support early career scholars who wish to visit CHES for brief periods (typically 1 week to 1 month) to engage with the CHES scientists and community in advancing their own program of health professions education scholarship. Individuals will be considered an early career scholar if they have been engaging in health professions education scholarship for less than 5 years.

Priority will be given to individuals from regions of the world that are underrepresented in health professional education scholarship.

ECVSP funds may be used to reimburse both travel and living expenses (i.e. flight, accommodation, meals, ground transportation) to a maximum of $3,000CAD per visit (limited to one visit per person). All expenses will need to follow UBC financial guidelines for expenditure. It is expected that approved applicants will use funding within 12 months of the date of approval. It is the visitor’s responsibility to ensure all required visa documentation for entry to Canada is satisfied.

Unsuccessful applicants must reapply if they wish to be re-considered in the next round.
