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.

Note: In 2014 - 2015, the Council for International Teaching and Research will conduct a comprehensive evaluation and assessment of the Global Scholars Program and there will not be a funding round this year (for 2015 - 2016). 


The Council for International Teaching and Research is pleased to announce and welcome two international leaders in the fields of mathematical physics and forensic architecture who have been appointed as Princeton Global Scholars. They join eight Global Scholars currently participating in the program who will return to campus during 2014-15.
