The Department of Applied Linguistics is able to accommodate a limited number of Visiting Scholars, typically up to three each academic year, for a period of three to twelve months. It is recommended that Visiting Scholars schedule their visit during the period of August to May, when classes are in session and faculty members are available. The Department is interested in visitors with a strong research program that complements its activities and research priorities. It is also important that the research interests of the Visiting Scholar relate well to the expertise of the sponsoring faculty member from the Department.
Currently, The Pennsylvania State University is implementing university-wide procedures that all academic units will have to follow when inviting visiting scholars. The updated procedure will be posted here.
