Interested in applying for the BRC Fellowship?

Purpose of Fellowship

To equip individuals with the knowledge, leadership skills, mentorship, and peer support to develop and implement a strategic plan for building research capacity within their own programs, departments, or institutions.

Qualifications of fellows

Those who want to build research/scholarship in their institutions—which requires skills in leadership, research organization, and faculty development. Candidates have been asked to be a change agent for building their organization’s capacity for producing scholarly activity. The fellow’s organization should support development of that capability, including supporting the development of a strategic plan as a product of the BRC Fellowship. Fellows might be chairs, aspiring chairs, research directors, research change agents in a residency program, administrators or others charged with making change in the organization.

The Building Research Capacity (BRC) Fellowship has 3 aims:

  • Coaching: Provide coaching support to build research and scholarship capacity within a program or institution
  • Support: Develop a peer support/network among other individuals or teams trying to build research capacity
  • Strategic Planning: Create a strategic plan for research and scholarship within their home program/institution
