General Policy for Visiting Scholars
All appointments are residential fellowships; visitors are expected to be in residence at Weatherhead and to be active participants in the intellectual life of the Weatherhead Center. Visiting Scholar appointments do not provide stipends.
Harvard operates on a semester system and appointments are for one or two Harvard semesters. Please plan to visit for one or two full semesters (late August to early December in the fall, and late January to early May in the spring).
Applicants are advised to arrive before the start of the Harvard academic semester. Consult the Harvard website for the appropriate academic calendars. https://registrar.fas.harvard.edu/ten-year-calendar
Applicants to SCANCOR at the Weatherhead Center must be tenure-track or tenured, full-time faculty members, at eligible institutions.
Applications from non-SCANCOR-affiliated institutions: SCANCOR at the Weatherhead Center endeavors to include visitors from institutions in the Global South through a fee waiver program. Applicants should indicate that they seek fee waiver. Please write to the program coordinator for further information.
