The Visiting Scholars program provides funding for campus visits by distinguished scholars, writers, and practitioners with expertise in developing countries and communities, particularly in areas where TCU cannot take students due to State Department travel warnings. These visits can be of short duration (2 – 3 days) or, if combined with funding from external sources, such as the State Department’s Scholar Rescue Program, for as long as two years.
Visiting Scholars will share their academic expertise and provide firsthand cultural insights. Visiting Scholars will ideally enhance other QEP initiatives by facilitating Virtual Voyage projects in developing countries or by identifying candidates for the Global Innovators program.
Visiting Scholars are expected to have significant interaction with students and faculty in their disciplines and additional engagement with the broader TCU community.
