The Visiting Scholars Program enables university faculty and academic researchers to pursue scholarly research projects and to engage with the East-West Center’s community of researchers, educators and policy experts. The East-West Center in Honolulu will host the scholar, providing affiliation, an office with computer and internet access, as well as access to resource materials at both the EWC’s Resource Information Services (RIS) and the University of Hawaii's library system. Visiting Scholars are responsible for their own funding and do not receive financial support from the Center.

Visiting Scholar terms are up to a year, and are tied to the academic calendar. The application deadline for the fall semester is March 31 and September 30 for the spring semester the following year. Shorter term appointments are possible if EWC’s resources allow. Applications must include the following attached files:

· A cover letter indicating the research theme or project for which the applicant is applying

· Curriculum vitae, which may be circulated among Center staff (For security reasons, please do not include any personal information such as birthdate, social security number, and/or passport number.)
