Each academic year, the School of Languages, Cultures, and World Affairs (LCWA) and the International Studies program invite to campus a select number of prominent international leaders as Visiting Fellows. During their brief but comprehensive stays, Visiting Fellows maximize interaction with students and the community while engaging their international networks.
Visiting Fellows participate in multiple events per day spanning classroom and public lectures to mentoring sessions with students and study groups. Visiting Fellows also help facilitate the LCWA World Affairs Colloquia. In addition, they stage and promote a colloquium on a topic of their interest.
Visiting Fellows are assigned students to serve as guides and a support team. Stipends support the cost of lodging and food, subsidize travel to and from Charleston and provide for an honorarium. Visiting Fellows are provided an office with a computer and phone for their use, as well as access to the Marlene and Nathan Addlestone Library and its resources from the EastWest Institute History Project.
