The Ostrom Workshop accepts nominations from our IU/IUPUI Workshop Affiliated Faculty (WAF) to invite exceptional non-IU colleagues as Visiting Scholars to the Workshop. The purpose of the Visiting Scholars program is to facilitate collaborations among IU-based and non-IU based faculty and graduate students leading to high-profile publications and grant submissions. Invitees can be senior or junior faculty, as well as advanced graduate students (at the dissertation stage); they can be U.S. or international visitors; and the duration of their visit may range from a week to a full academic year. We will review nominations through an interdisciplinary Visiting Scholars Selection Committee, which meets three times a year. (For more information about the selection process, see Nomination Guidelines below.)
