During Your Visit

Scholar Responsibilities

Research Project: It is important that all visiting scholars make successful progress in their research program while they are affiliated with IEAS. As a signal for completion of the scholar's research program, all visiting scholars and other affiliates are required to submit a final report on their research to the Chair when the affiliation ends.

IEAS Colloquia and Conferences: IEAS visiting scholars are expected to attend as many IEAS colloquia and other public activities as possible. The scholar must at some time present an oral report or a public lecture, in their own language or English, on his or her research. Such lectures are free and open to the public.

Services Provided by IEAS

Affiliation with IEAS allows visiting scholars to obtain an official campus identification card (http://vspa.berkeley.edu/id-cards-visiting-researcher-scholars). Services also include photocopying privileges and use of a shared working space.

IEAS provides library privileges, shared computer facilities with various language software and internet connections, modest research assistance, administrative support, and meeting space. Office space is shared with approximately 3 to 5 scholars per room.

Request an Extension

The period of affiliation for IEAS visiting scholars is usually one year. However, extensions of up to one additional year can be made on a case by case basis. To request an extension, please submit a one page description to dureste@berkeley.edu (in English) on the current status of your research and a justification for why the extra time is needed. The fees for extending can be found on the Application Information page under the Fees section. Please note that extensions on housing agreements, whether university housing or private housing, are not automatically guaranteed, and therefore scholars should secure housing before making the decision to accept an extension, if an extension is granted.

Early Departures

Scholars are expected to stay in residence throughout their entire affiliation period. Exceptions may be granted in cases of extreme hardship. Scholars who wish to depart early must request to do so at least two months in advance of their affiliation end date. Scholars must also submit their final report before their departure.
