Visiting Scholars

visiting scholars banner

The Center for Global Studies welcomes visiting scholars affiliated with other academic institutions in the United States and abroad. We provide affiliations for a semester or full academic year to scholars wishing to conduct research in the Washington DC area while simultaneously contributing to the intellectual life of the university. While these positions are not currently remunerated, we provide researchers who have their own sources of funding with office space, computer & telephone, and an institutional affiliation that provides access to the Washington Research Library Consortium. We welcome inquiries about the visiting scholars program from both post-doctoral researchers, and doctoral candidates planning to conduct dissertation research in the Washington DC area.

All applications are considered by committee and scholars offered affiliation with the Center should take into consideration that the Department of Homeland Security must process all requests for visa sponsorship. Therefore, please allow three months time between the offer of affiliation on behalf of the Center and the scholar’s date of entry into the US.
