Short-Term International Visiting Scholars Program Guidelines

Identify a Scholar or Artist - International Visiting Fellows are typically identified by Grinnell faculty. However, the CIS will help identify suitable scholars and artists using its own international network of universities and contacts.

Honorarium and subsidies - Each visiting fellow receives a $1000 honorarium for each week of teaching at the College. CIS also pays for flights and ground transportation and provides housing and a food allowance during the fellow's stay in Grinnell.

Lengths of stay - Fellows generally stay between three and six weeks. The CIS director can discuss special requests for a longer visit.
