Eligibility and Selection Criteria

Eligibility and Selection Criteria for ASP Faculty Fellowship Program

We are not accepting applications at this time.

All faculty employed at a college or university are eligible to apply.  Selection will be based on innovative science proposals and a clear need to spend time at NCAR to accomplish the research, as well as a mentoring plan for the students.

An application will consist of,

  • A 2-page curriculum vitae,
  • A three to five-page prospectus outlining the nature of the research to be performed at NCAR along with the mentoring plan for your student(s),
  • A budget form (download here) describing the anticipated costs, including a clear demarcation between costs to the program and those being covered by other sources.
  • Letters of support for the proposed visit from your home institution and/or your prospective host. Letters from the home institution are typically written by a department chair, director, or dean.


The ASP Director and the UCAR Presidents Advisory Committee on University Relations (PACUR) will review the applications. Evaluation criteria include the scientific merit of the proposal, the potential for applicant career development, the promise of fruitful and lasting interactions between NCAR and a university faculty member, the potential for increasing diversity in the atmospheric and related sciences, and the involvement of a UCAR member university.

There is no limit to the number of times any individual may apply. There are no set quotas.

Please submit your application to asp-apply@ucar.edu
