Visiting Scholars

The Visiting Scholars Program at the Sié Chéou-Kang Center is open to professors, lecturers and researchers with independent funding who wish to spend one month to one year at the Center to pursue research activities. Visiting scholars will receive access to the University facilities, including the libraries; email privileges; office space; and the opportunity to meet and work with students and colleagues with similar academic interests. Visiting scholars may be asked to teach one course related to their research during the term of their appointment and give a presentation in the Sié Center Research Seminar Series.

Interested scholars should send their curriculum vitae, a two-page description of their research project (including why time at the Sié Center would be beneficial), a statement of financial support, and the proposed dates of residency to sie.center@du.edu. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
