Visiting Scholars Program

Each year, the Center receives many requests from scholars who seek affiliation with the BMW Center wile undertaking their research in the nation’s capital. We also forged a partnership for faculty to visit Georgetown through the European Commission’s Marie Curie Exchange Program, and through the Open Society Institute of the George Soros Foundation. In the upcoming academic year, we look forward to providing more opportunities for scholars to deepen their research by sponsoring two DAAD visiting research positions.
