HOW TO APPLY FOR A VISITING SCHOLAR OR AFFILIATE APPOINTMENT
To apply for appointment as a Visiting Scholar or Visiting Affiliate, please send the following materials via e-mail (as attachments, in *.pdf format) to the UCLA Public Policy Department Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. A cover letter, no more than two pages long and on university/institution letterhead, that includes:
2. A curriculum vitae (CV)
3. A detailed project description
There is no deadline for applications, however, domestic applicants should allow at least one month for application consideration and at least two additional months for processing, per the approval of the visiting appointment. International visitors should apply at least six months in advance in order to allow time for visa processing.
The Department of Public Policy’s invitation for a visiting appointment is at the discretion of the faculty and Department Chair. To identify an appropriate faculty member for sponsorship, please access the Department of Public Policy faculty research listing.
Once a sponsoring faculty member and the Public Policy Chair recommend a Visiting Scholar or Affiliate appointment, a letter of invitation for a specific term will be issued. The visa application process will begin upon acceptance of the invitation.
