VISITING FELLOWS POLICY CHANGE

Previously, Center fellowships were limited to two semesters during the entire career of Visiting Fellows. This policy has been changed.

A Center Fellow can now visit the Center for at most two semesters every ten years.

In other words, after your first semester-long Fellowship, you can spend another semester as a Center Fellow in the ten years following. If you have spent an academic year at the Center, you have to wait ten years to revisit the Center as a Fellow. (After ten years, the clock is reset to zero.)

We hope to see many of you as returning Fellows in the future!
