About the RTI University Scholars Program

Since 2014, the RTI University Scholars Program has provided partial support for distinguished academic researchers to spend scholarly leave time at RTI, actively collaborating with our experts. The ideal Scholar is a tenured or research-track faculty member at the Associate Professor level or higher with a commitment to collaboration and a strong research record in a field that aligns with RTI’s practice areas and services and capabilities.

The program’s goal is to foster collaboration and catalyze opportunities for externally funded, joint projects in the future.

This year, the RTI University Scholars Program is open to faculty from Duke University and the University of North Carolina’s 16 university campuses. Please refer to the Call for Applications for detailed information regarding the application process.

RTI provides a stimulating environment for individual and collaborative research. Scholars are expected to serve most of their residency at our headquarters in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park. Scholars should plan to be on RTI’s campus two to three days per week during their residency period.

RTI particularly encourages researchers from traditionally underrepresented groups to apply.
