Global Scholars Program

The Global Scholars Program enables the University to recruit stellar scholars from outside the United States into recurring, multi-year teaching appointments at Princeton in all disciplines and regional studies programs. The scholars are incorporated into departments’ and programs’ curricula and events, and engage in scholarly exchange with Princeton faculty and students. These appointments bring vital new voices from abroad to Princeton departments and classrooms to inaugurate and sustain durable ties between Princeton and academic centers of excellence around the world.
