The Visiting Researchers Program (VRP) provides support for University of Ottawa faculty members to host international colleagues for two-week stays on campus.


Managed by the International Research and Experiential Learning office (IREX), the Visiting Researchers Program (VRP) provides funding for two-week visits by international researchers to the University of Ottawa with the following goals:

  • To foster partnerships and develop joint research projects between the University of Ottawa and international researchers;
  • To enrich the research experience of students by giving them the opportunity to meet and work with leading researchers; and
  • To increase the visibility of the University of Ottawa within the international research community.


For the VRP 2023 round, IREX expects to support between 20 and 25 visits. All eligible uOttawa researchers are invited to apply.


The VRP 2023 round is now closed. The application deadline is January 13, 2023.
