With primary support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, IREX has designed the current round of the University Administration Support Program (UASP) to contribute to improving the research capacity of Public Universities in a selected number of universities in participating countries. Program elements include:
1. Fellowships in Research Management. IREX provides competitively awarded short-term fellowships for mid- and senior-level university research managers and ministry officials to spend approximately seven weeks in the US. Four of these are with counterparts at respected US public universities to analyze and to observe operations in their assigned US research management offices, as well as other host university divisions. This is bookended by three weeks of intensive training and facilitated reflection in Washington, DC. While in the US, fellows are required to prepare a Research Management Comparison Study on a research management issue relevant to development needs at their home institution. The studies are then published on the IREX website.
2. Grants and Post-Fellowship Engagement. Fellows in university research management will be eligible to compete for grants to support follow-on activity, to attend relevant national and international conferences or to provide a research grant to a faculty member from their home institution.
