Visitors

In addition to its fellowship cohort, the Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination welcomes short-term visitors from the Columbia community.

Columbia University Arts and Sciences faculty are invited to apply for short-term Visiting Fellowships, and graduate students are invited to apply for Visiting Graduate Scholarships. Both schemes are intended to support visits of 1-3 weeks and include support for travel and housing costs, as well as office space and administrative support. Applicants should contact Administrative Director Marie d'Origny for more details.

Short-term Visiting Fellowships

Columbia University Arts and Sciences faculty are encouraged to apply for short-term visiting Fellowships for 2020-21 to cover trips to the Institute of 1-3 weeks. The Fellowships provide support for travel and housing and include office space at the Institute and administrative support during the stay.

Eligible purposes include: working with Institute Fellows or other colleagues in Paris; organising workshops, talks or conferences and research. This scheme is offered in partnership with the Alliance and applicants whose work involves them in working in Paris with Alliance partners should specify this in their application.
