The Visiting Scholars and Fellows Program strengthens ties between Harvard and other global institutions by hosting distinguished academics and professionals who conduct research on a particular topic or region of Latin America.
Apply to be a Visiting Scholar
Each year a number of distinguished academics (Visiting Scholars) and professionals (Fellows) are selected to spend one or two semesters at Harvard working on their own research and writing projects. Visiting Scholars and Fellows are decided upon competitively on the basis of the applicant's qualifications, the quality of the applicant's research plans, and the relevance of both to the Center's mission and objectives.
