Applicants are reminded that the Visiting Fellows program is restricted
to those with a relevant doctoral degree. Doctoral candidates are
advised that their applications will only be considered after their
doctorates have been awarded. We also would like to remind you that instead of being limited to two semesters during your entire career, Visiting Fellows can now visit the Center for at most two semesters every ten years.
