We Welcome

Invited Visiting Scholars

We invite visitors to work on specific projects with us or to share their research. These scholars come through individual arrangements with faculty.

Fulbright Visiting Scholars

Our faculty committee reviews select Visiting Scholar applications from the Fulbright Program. 

SGPEP Visiting Scholars

Be a “Visiting International Professional”  through the Second Language Studies Specialized Global Professional Educational Program.

We expect all visiting scholars to have a Ph.D. and/or hold a faculty position at a university in their home country, unless other arrangements are made with the members of the Second Language Studies Program. Visiting scholars must arrange for their own housing, but can utilize MSU facilities, including the library and internet access, and are encouraged to participate in public SLS program’s events (workshops, lectures, discussion sessions). Visiting scholars are often able to unofficially audit some of our graduate courses, although this can only be done with the consent of the professor in charge of the course. Visiting Scholars may officially enroll in graduate courses (in some cases/courses consent of the professor is needed) through Lifelong Education (Lifelong Education tuition fees apply; currently the non-resident Lifelong per-credit rate is $931.00). Because of limited space, the SLS Program is not able to provide any office space or access to a computer, although there is public work space and access to computers on campus. If you have questions about any of the three ways to be a Visiting Scholar at MSU who centers their work and connections within the Second Language Studies Program, please feel free to email Dr. Paula Winke, the SLS Program Director, with your questions (winke@msu.edu).
