Visiting Professors


This fund aims to boost research activities through short visits and stays of foreign reseachers and professors to UC.


It will be financed up to a maximum of $3.000.000, depending on the extension of the visit of the international researcher or professor and the amount of counterpart funding. These resources should be allocated to cover all or part of the flight ticket, the allowance and/or health insurance.


This fund is available for UC faculty members only, so if you have interest in visiting our University, please get in touch with your colleague at UC and discuss the possibility of applying to this fund to do it. If you do not have any known colleague at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, you can contact the International Affairs Office, where they can help you get in touch with our Faculties and Academic Units in order to find if there is any UC professor or researcher working in your area of interest.
