Visiting Scholars

Some of the world’s brightest minds have made Princeton their home for scholarship and research.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our visiting appointments have been postponed to the 2021-2022 academic year.

PLAS awards four to six long-term fellowships annually, for one or two semesters, to top international or national scholars, and promising mid-career scholars, in the humanities and social sciences who have teaching experience, as well as established writers, artists, filmmakers and architects who are working on projects related to Latin America and are stellar teachers, who will provide Princeton students with a unique opportunity to study topics that are not regularly offered at the University. Visiting Research Scholars will be expected to teach one undergraduate course and to participate in PLAS-related events on campus. For more information about the call for applications, which opens in the fall, please visit the fellowships section of the website.
