The Annenberg School of Communication's Center for Global Communication Studies at the University of Pennsylvania is seeking applications for its Spring 2015, Fall 2015, and Spring 2016 Visiting Scholar Program. Non-tenured professors, post-doctoral researchers, and advanced graduate students from around the world are welcome to apply to the program which will allow them to collaborate on research at CGCS and participate in the intellectual life of the Annenberg School. Scholars are expected to engage with Annenberg faculty and students, attend events and colloquia at the Annenberg School, present their research at a seminar, and produce a short research paper as a result of their stay.

Applicants will be judged based on the quality of their research and relevance to CGCS research programs. Priority will be given to applicants from outside of the United States.

CGCS Now Offering Visiting Researcher Scholarships
CGCS is also offering a limited number scholarships of up to $5000 USD to offset the costs of travel and living expenses.  The stipend amount will vary based on an applicant's proposed duration of visit, and should largely cover a stay of 2-3 months (for living and/or travel expenses). However, if scholars are able to secure additional funding, full year participation is also an option.
Please indicate your interest/need in your application.
