Visiting Scholars Program

Regrettably, we will not be hosting visiting scholars for the 2014-2015 academic year. Contact us at lasc@umd.edu if you have any questions.

LASC will consider applications for one semester from junior or senior scholars. Stipends will be between $20,000 and $30,000 depending on available funding and scholars' qualifications. Senior scholars may be eligible for a one-semester appointment as Distinguished Scholar, which carries a stipend equal to half the scholars yearly salary, up to $55,000. Scholars from Latin America may be reimbursed up to $3,000 for relocation expenses.

Visiting Scholars must hold a PhD or equivalent. Scholars from any country are eligible. Applicants are not required to be affiliated with an academic institution.
LASC is committed to affirmative action and equal employment opportunity.
Applications must include:
1) the application form
2) a description of the proposed research to be carried out while in residence (2,500 words maximum)
3) a writing sample of 20-40 pages (non-returnable)
4) a curriculum vitae
5) three letters of reference
