Distinguished Scholars in Residence

This program has been discontinued. In January 2014 we launched the new Wall Scholars Research Award, which combines the Early Career Scholars, Distinguished Scholars in Residence, and Research Mentorship Awards into one program.

The Distinguished Scholars in Residence program was introduced in 1998. The award was available to UBC Faculty members to spend one year in residence at the Peter Wall Institute, in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment.  There were a number of exciting initiatives at the Peter Wall Institute, promising an exceptional level of intellectual engagement and innovative research.  The Distinguished Scholars in Residence are integrally involved in a number of these initiatives, while having ample time to pursue their own research.  Every year, up to six Distinguished Scholars in Residence were appointed at the Institute, each with up to $20,000 in funding.
