The Visiting Scholar Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Computing and Information (SCI) offers academic scholars from around the world the opportunity to visit the University of Pittsburgh, conduct research, and make a valuable contribution to SCI.

Visiting Scholars are selected by a committee who evaluate the candidate’s background, research proposal, dates of proposed residence, as well as the capacity of the faculty and library to meet the candidate’s research needs.

Scholars interested in participating in SCI’ Visiting Scholar Program should review the program requirements before submitting an application. It is essential that candidates identify an SCI faculty member to be their sponsor/host during their visit. The faculty sponsor/host will provide guidance during a Visiting Scholar’s residence at SCI.
