The Visiting Industrial Scholar Program helps support visits by senior industrial scientists to ORAU member institutions. The primary goal of the program is to foster interactions between faculty and students at member institutions and industrial scientists. The form of the interaction is left to the individual institution: seminars, lectures, cooperative project development, etc.


  1. The grant must be requested by an ORAU member institution for a visit during the 2005-2006 academic year.
  2. A copy of the application must be signed by the ORAU Councilor or Campus Representative and faxed to ORAU before application can be reviewed.
  3. Institutions customarily invite Ph.D.-/M.D.-level senior industrial scientists.
  4. The grant of $600.00 is to be used for expenses related to the on-campus visit of an industrial scientist.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Wednesday, November 22, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) a one-page vita of the proposed visiting scholar, 2) a tentative agenda, and 3) the purpose of the visit and how it will be beneficial.

Amount: At least $600
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 22, 2005 (letter of intent)
