Visiting Scholar Fellowships

Two nonstipendiary programs offer campus privileges to qualified postdoctoral scholars who are not affiliated with UCLA but intend to pursue research here on the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Scholars participating in these programs receive library and course-auditing privileges and are eligible to purchase recreation center membership. International scholars are eligible to purchase a group-rate medical insurance plan; domestic scholars are responsible for their own health insurance. Visiting scholars are senior scholars and distinguished visitors who hold a doctoral degree or the foreign equivalent and who hold an appointment comparable to those of UCLA faculty, and are usually on temporary leave from their universities or research centers. Details on application procedures can be obtained from the Center. Applications are considered when they are received.

Visiting Scholar Status

Appointments, normally of a year's duration, are available to distinguished visitors and senior scholars who seek a short-term relationship with UCLA for purposes of independent research and study.

Postdoctoral Scholar Status

Appointments for up to three years are offered to qualified junior scholars who have received a Ph.D. in the last six years and wish to engage in advanced study and research under faculty guidance.
