Visiting Scholars

Note on Coronavirus: Please be aware that we are still accepting applications for the Jordan Center Visiting Scholar Program. Current NYU policy prohibits all non-essential, in-person visits from both internationally-based and US-based individuals. We hope that this will not be the case in a few months once the situation has changed globally. Of course, our programs are all conditional upon NYU’s campus reopening in the Fall; however, in the case that on-campus activity remains limited, we would still be able to provide visiting scholars with access to all online resources that NYU affiliation provides. Please feel free to reach out to with any questions or concerns. 


Purpose: The Jordan Center visiting scholar fellowship program aims to support scholars whose research interests are focused on Russia. The fellowship provides individuals with access to the NYU library system, office space when available, invitations to Jordan Center events, and membership in the Jordan Center community.

Deadline: May 1, 2020

Eligibility: Applicants may include any scholars working on Russia related topics who are already residing in the NYC area that would benefit from an affiliation with NYU and the Jordan Center and would like to be a part of our community. Advanced PhD students pursuing research related to their dissertations are also welcome to apply.

Visiting Scholars are not employees of NYU and under no circumstances should they be considered as such. Note also that the visiting scholar do not receive financial support from the Jordan Center and are only intended for those residing in the NYC area. Visiting Scholar affiliation is generally available by academic semester (Fall/Spring/Summer) for up to three terms with the possibility of renewal for one additional year.

Application Guidelines: 

 Applicants should submit:

  • a current curriculum vitae;
  • a one-three page research statement

Please upload your application materials here by May 1, 2020.
