Koç University Visiting Scholar Program


Faculty members with research appointments (Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor) can apply to the Koç University Visiting Scholar Program now. Applicants are expected to make arrangements with the University they wish to visit and to obtain an invitation from thereof.

Similarly, we encourage faculty members to extend invitations to scholars working at international universities to participate in the Visiting Scholar Program at Koç University so that we can establish the foundations for research-oriented and long-lasting partnerships.

Koç University support for outgoing scholars include:

  • A stipend of USD 700 per week for a duration of 4 to 8-week.
  • A round-trip economy class airfare.
  • Outgoing participants are expected to make their own housing arrangements.

Koç University support for incoming scholars who will be hosted by a Koç faculty include:

  • A round-trip economy class airfare.
  • Accommodation at faculty housing at no cost (subject to availability).

Faculty members interested in participating in this program to visit another university or to host a visiting researcher should first discuss their possible visits with their deans and secure their support, then they should apply via apply.ku.edu.tr (for outgoing applications) and apply.ku.edu.tr (for incoming applications).

For any questions, please contact Ms. Zeynep Kotevoğlu at vpaa@ku.edu.tr

The application deadline for both programs is February 20th, 2024.
