Visiting Researcher Program

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese hosts a limited number of visiting researchers from around the world each year.  As program participants, Visiting Researchers have the unique opportunity to be a part of the Georgetown community with access to Georgetown University libraries, programs, events, and other valuable university resources.  With Faculty permission, Visiting Researchers may also audit Georgetown University courses free of charge.  

Typical applicants are either researchers with PhDs or current doctoral students. Visiting researchers are required to give at least one lecture on their research to our master’s degree candidates.  Whenever possible, they work with faculty or graduate students in teams and provide advice and support, a valuable benefit to our students.

Please note that due to limited funds, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese does not provide financial assistance or office space to visiting researchers; however, limited printing is available.

Application Process 

All application information must be provided to the department at least 3 months prior to the Visiting Researcher’s arrival on campus. Please note that the Department works with the Graduate School and the Office of Global Education to complete all the paperwork necessary for admittance to the United States. Application materials should be submitted in English. The amount of time required to complete the process only gets longer, thus the earlier the process starts, the better. 

Beginning January 2018, there is a facilities fee of $450 per semester for the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and $400 per semester for the Graduate School. Graduate students are exempted from the Departmental Fee; senior researchers may qualify for a fee reduction at the discretion of the Department.
