Centre of Latin American Studies


Visiting Scholars and Fellows

The Centre welcomes a number of Visiting Scholars and one official Visiting Fellow each academic year, in addition to the Simón Bolívar Professor. Visiting Scholars and Fellows hold a doctorate and are usually employed by a higher education institution in Latin America or elsewhere in the world. 

Visiting Scholars and Fellows may be nominated by members of the University or apply direct to the Centre. All applications and nominations will be considered by the Centre's Management Committee and awards will be made strictly on academic merit.

Visiting Scholars are given access to research facilities, including libraries, and (if available) a desk in the Centre, usually subject to a small fee. Visiting Fellows are given a modest award to cover their accommodation expenses and travel from their home country.

Visiting Scholars and Fellows are welcomed into the Centre's research community and invited to attend as many academic and cultural events organized by the Centre and the University as they wish.
