Visiting Scholars

Scholars pursuing Mongolia studies from throughout the world are invited to submit applications for visiting scholar status at the Center. These honorary affiliates are chosen on the strength of their research projects and the ability of the faculty or library resources on the Berkeley campus to meet their research needs. Scholars may be working in a range of disciplines, including but not limited to, religion, anthropology, political science, history, and natural resources. Scholars may remain at the Center for six months to a year, and are expected to complete the project they originally proposed. They are also to participate regularly in the University scholarly life and academic programs. These scholars are granted basic access to the university library system, limited photocopy and mailing privileges, and shared office space, if available.

Scholars with an interest in visiting scholar status should have a developed project in mind and sufficient financial resources for their stay at UC Berkeley. The UC Berkeley Mongolia Initiative follows the application procedure of the Center for Chinese Studies, which can be found at: http://ieas.berkeley.edu/ccs/vs_application.html. Initial inquiries for application materials may be directed to Caverlee Cary at ccary@berkeley.edu. A summary of the proposed project should be included.
