The Visiting Scholar Program extends specified courtesy titles and privileges to scholars of distinction who visit the Center for European and Mediterranean Studies at New York University in order to engage in research and scholarship. Visiting scholars are considered guests of the University and CEMS, who may visit for a temporary period of up to one year (renewable). The visiting scholar title may be granted to scholars who hold academic appointments elsewhere, to scholars who have no academic affiliation (e.g., who are independent private scholars, government officials, business people or scientists employed by corporations), or to younger scholars who are sufficiently proficient in their disciplines to be accepted as colleagues by the University's faculty, but who have yet to obtain academic appointments that would qualify them for other courtesy titles.

To contact a visiting scholar, please email the Center for European and Mediterranean studies (european.studies@nyu.edu)
