Visiting Scholars

The School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (IAS) welcomes visiting faculty, researchers, and artists from across the U.S. and around the world. IAS hosts a limited number of visiting scholars at one time. In selecting visiting scholars each year, IAS looks for a good fit between the research interests of the prospective visitor and IAS faculty members.

How to Become an IAS Visiting Scholar

Visiting scholars enrich the IAS and UW Bothell community by participating in school events, collaborating on research projects and symposia, and interacting with faculty members, students, and staff. Prospective visitors need to secure an IAS “sponsor”: a faculty member in IAS whose research interests align with theirs and who is willing to speak in favor of their visit. Prospective visitors should also identify at least two additional IAS faculty members whose interests align with their own. Learn more HERE (download PDF guidelines).
