Visiting Scholar Program

CRSC welcomes foreign and domestic scholars to apply for short and long term residence at the UC Berkeley campus.  CRSC provides scholars with access to office space (if space is available), participation in programs and events, and a lively intellectual community.  Scholars are given an opportunity to publish their papers on the California Digital Library and to share their work with graduate students, faculty, and community members.

Procedure for applying to be a visiting scholar at ISSI:

1.  Please send your request to be a visiting scholar at CRSC to Dr. Deborah Lustig (see address below). Requests for visiting scholar positions at CRSC must include:

  • A brief letter of nomination from a CRSC or ISSI affiliated faculty member indicating the appropriateness of the scholar's research to the mission and community of CRSC.

  • The proposed visiting scholar's CV and a brief statement of the research to be undertaken while a visiting scholar at CRSC.

  • Indication of whether the proposed visiting scholar needs office space.

  • The dates requested.

2.  Requests will be reviewed to determine if the proposed research complements CRSC work and if space is available. 

3.  If accepted as a visiting scholar, the scholar will be required to pay a University administrative services fee ($750 effective Jan. 1 2018), in addition to any fees related to securing a visa (if applicable).
