Computer science, information science, high-performance computing, supercomputing
CISL Research and Supercomputing Visitor Program (RSVP)
NCAR Computational & Information Systems Laboratory
The RSVP program for scientists and supercomputing professionals facilitates visits of several weeks to several months. Partial or full support for travel and living expenses may be available. Visitors must be sponsored by a CISL staff member and have a clear plan for the visit. Some student opportunities may also be available.
Developmental Testbed Center Visitor Program
NCAR-NOAA Developmental Testbed Center
DTC is a distributed facility where the NWP (numerical weather prediction) community can test and evaluate new models and techniques for use in research and operations. The program provides various kinds of support to principal investigators or graduate students under direction of a PI. Visitors work with the DTC on testing new forecasting and verification techniques, models, and model components.

Observing the atmosphere
EOL Visitor Program
NCAR Earth Observing Laboratory
Scientists and engineers visit from institutions all over the globe to collaborate on a variety of projects. Length of visit may range from several weeks to several months. Partial or full support for travel and living expenses may be available. Visitors must be sponsored by an EOL staff member and have a clear plan for the visit.
COSMIC Visitor Program
UCAR Constellation Observing System for Meteorology, Ionosphere, and Climate
COSMIC hosts U.S. and international visitors for collaboration on topics relevant to research and applications in radio occultation. Prospective visitors can be either invited or request visits, but all must have a COSMIC host who agrees to sponsor the collaboration, and/or direct the research or project. Travel expenses and other support are usually provided by the visitor, but may be available through COSMIC.

Solar and upper atmospheric research
HAO Scientific Visitors Program
NCAR High Altitude Observatory
HAO research spans the solar interior, atmosphere, corona and heliosphere, plus Earth's atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere, as well as those of other planets. Radiative transfer, hydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, radiation hydrodynamics, and plasma physics are pursued both for their fundamental physical interest and for their applications to these research areas. Participants collaborate with members of the HAO scientific staff and other long-term visitors on these topics during visits lasting from a few days to a year.

UVISIT: University Visits in Scientific Interaction and Teaching
UCAR University Relations Program
The UCAR President’s Office sponsors UVisit to enable scientists and engineers at NCAR and UCAR to spend significant time at U.S. universities for collaborative research, teaching, lectureships, workshops, and similar activities. The emphasis is on extended, focused time in residence at UCAR member universities and colleages, and member institutions are encourated to submit visit requests. UVisit supplements the ASP Faculty Fellowship Program listed above.
