The Chancellor’s Research Fellows (CRF) Program, supported by funds received from the Chancellor’s Circle and the TWU Foundation, brings peer support and resources together for two cohorts of TWU faculty.  The objectives are to identify faculty with strong potential for obtaining external funding for research; to match each protégé with an experienced mentor; and to provide additional research support that will help both Protégés and Mentors succeed.  The protégés should demonstrate a strong potential for research but need some assistance in order to build a research program and become competitive for external funding. Each protégé and the mentors are faculty with a successful record of research publication and external funding.

Protégés and mentors receive monetary awards funded by the TWU Chancellor's Circle and the TWU Foundation to use for their individual research needs. Mentors assist their protégés in developing their research agendas and grant applications. Protégés are responsible for submitting at least one proposal for external funding during the fellowship year or the following academic year. Both mentors and protégés participate in research roundtables where topics such as finding funding proposals and proposal review and critique are discussed.
