Call for nominations- IAS Distinguished Scholars




Guidelines for submitting Scholars in the IAS Distinguished Scholars framework 

  • Framework of Visits

    There are several IAS frameworks for bringing visitors to the university, and the "IAS Distinguished Scholars" framework is reserved for distinguished visitors who are recognized leaders in their academic discipline.


    Nominations of "IAS Distinguished Scholars" are usually made by the Faculties. Faculty members are welcome to initiate such nominations; however, should be done with a reference from the Dean of the Faculty. The nomination file should include a nomination letter, a detailed Curriculum Vitae of the candidate that clearly describes the nominee's achievements, a list of publications, and a supporting letter by the Dean. These nominations are brought to the Institute Steering Committee in its annual meeting during January each year. Final decisions are usually expected by the end of January.



    The maximum funding provided for a short time visit is $5,000; the actual support will depend on the availability of funds and the expected cost of the visit. The maximum funding for a long time visit is $15,000 with the actual support derived from the duration of the visit and its expected cost. Host Departments / Faculties are expected to contribute part of the support required for their visitors. This contribution is not mandatory, however, in assigning priorities towards final decision, an offer of cost-sharing by the Faculty will be discussed with the other criteria.


  • How to

    Time Table

    Nominations intended for the January meeting of the Institute Committee should be submitted to the IAS secretary until the beginning of December. Decisions concerning IAS Distinguished Scholars Fellows will be made one academic year before their expected visit (i.e. the fellows are elected for the academic year starting in the following October).


    Confirmed Visitors

    Following confirmation of a nominated Fellow, the Institute will notify the originator(s) of the nomination and the dean, and send a letter of invitation to the confirmed candidate. Confirmed fellows are expected to coordinate the timing of their visit with their faculty hosts as well as with the Institute. 

    The Institute staff will take care of logistics associated with travel, housing, and general expenses, and assist the host in organizing and announcing any academic program associated with the visit.

    Faculties are expected to take care of the academic schedule and the on-campus needs of their visitors, including office space and computer services.
