Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) -- KITP Scholars

Funding Agency:
University of California, Santa Barbara

The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics supports visiting researchers in physics who are faculty at teaching intensive U.S. colleges.
Applicants need to be from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions and from institutions with greater emphasis on teaching (as measured, for example, by teaching load). Ongoing research activity is also a criterion.

Each award funds a total of three round trips and up to six weeks of local expenses, to be used over a period of up to three years, usually 2 weeks per year. Approximately 6-8 are chosen each year.
