Harvard University - Koç University Visiting Scholar Program provides travel and accommodation support to faculty members with research appointments (Asst. Prof., Assoc. Prof. or Prof.) for their research visits at Harvard University.

The program is managed in collaboration with the Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES) of Harvard University, however all faculty members with research appointments (Asst. Prof., Assoc. Prof. or Prof.) can apply for this program. Through this program, participants may also visit other departments at Harvard if they make the arrangements themselves.

The Harvard University - Koç University Visiting Scholar Program primarily supports long-term (4 weeks to 12 weeks) visits during summer.

Faculty members interested in participating in this program to visit Harvard University should first discuss their possible visits with their deans and get their approval. The Harvard University - Koç University Visiting Scholar program applications are submitted to the VPAA Office by the end of January (https://vpaa.ku.edu.tr/en/faculty-resources/).
