Visiting Scholar Program

Scholarly exchanges are an important means of establishing and maintaining a community of scholarship throughout the world. The IU School of Public Health-Bloomington visiting scholar program supports international, collaborative research by matching international visiting scholars and IU School of Public Health-Bloomington faculty hosts with similar interests.

Optimal collaborations are mutually beneficial and produce tangible outcomes, such as published papers or presentations.
