Practitioner in Residence program

Strengthening industry engagement at the Trust

The Practitioner in Residence Program fosters academic engagement between experienced practitioners and a research incubator through short-term research support designed to deliver solutions.

Our residency program provides an opportunity for experienced practitioners to bring their research project to life through academic support and training at the University.

Research / projects that aligns with the interests of the Henry Halloran Trust - including urban and regional policy, planning, housing, infrastructure, Indigenous land management, and sustainable built environments - are encouraged to apply. 

The practitioner might be working in government, industry, or the non profit sector.

Selection criteria for candidates include:

  1. Experience and demonstrated expertise of the practitioner
  2. A well-formed research proposal that can be delivered in 2-3 months (see over for the guidelines for preparing a proposal)
  3. A demonstrated connection to scholarship


The residency program is intended to last between two to four months on a part-time basis.

If the practitioner works full time, an arrangement can be negotiated with their employer.

Where the practitioner has no other full time income, an honorarium will be negotiated. The standard rate is $10,000 paid upon project completion. 

Applications for 2022 are now closed.
