The Center for Global Peace and Conflict Studies (CGPACS) can occasionally host Visiting Scholars from U.S. and foreign universities to work in close collaboration with specific UCI faculty on issues related to global peace and conflict studies. Visiting Scholars in the past have included senior scholars, post-doctoral scholars, and advanced doctoral students in a broad range of fields.  

Applicants must have secured funding from a fellowship or a university sabbatical. They must also have a clearly defined research project developed in conversation with a scholar (or team of scholars) at UCI, who is willing to serve as liaison and host during the applicant’s stay. Scholars and advanced doctoral students may apply to be in residence for a period from one month to one year. Visiting scholars will have office space and library privileges and will be encouraged to participate in events at CGPACS and the broader UCI community, and to hold a public presentation about their research during their fellowship period.

Interested individuals should first communicate with relevant UCI faculty to develop a research proposal, and to secure agreement from this faculty member to serve as liaison and host during the applicant’s stay. Applications consist of relevant correspondence with UCI faculty, the applicant’s CV, a 2-page description of the research project (including why a residency at UCI would be beneficial) and the proposed dates of residency. All applications should be sent to: Lina Celia Moncayo,
