Visiting Scholars Program

Each year, the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science hosts research visitors from other institutions. In typical years, funding is available to cover travel and housing costs for several visitors, allowing new or established faculty to visit UC Irvine for periods ranging from several weeks to one or more full academic quarters. The stipend award amount typically depends on the length of the proposed visit and the availability of funds. Responsibilities involve interacting with both faculty and graduate students on current research projects. The competition for the 2024-25 visitor program is now closed; information about the 2025-26 visitor program will be announced during the Fall quarter.
