Research Visit to the George Washington University

Dear Colleagues,

Full time faculty members of Boğaziçi University can apply for a research visit (one to three months) at our academic partner The George Washington University. Both universities host one or two scholars from each other every academic year. 

The visit of each scholar will be supported by a grant (up to $10,000) depending on the availability of funds that year. The grant amount is a partial support for all expenses including accommodation. It is possible to plan this visit as (part of) a sabbatical leave. 

Those who wish to apply for the 2022-2023 academic year should submit the following documents:

  • A cover letter including the dates of the proposed visit and the desired GWU departmental affiliation;
  • A research statement describing the work to be conducted at GWU, names of GWU faculty members to collaborate or to meet;
  • A letter from the chair of your department/institute/school supporting the application;
  •  Curriculum Vita with a list of publications.

Application documents should be sent to by December 10, 2021, Friday 5 p.m.

All applications will be jointly processed by Boğaziçi University and the GWU before announcing the award. Priority will be given to those visits that can foster joint research projects between the two institutions and to those with well supported joint research proposals. 

Best regards,

The Office of International Relations
