Domestic and international scholarly exchanges provide doctoral graduate students with a variety of opportunities that broaden academic horizons. Whether the underlying reason for participating in an exchange resides in mastering course content in another language, visiting archives, collections, and fellow scholars firsthand, or learning new methodologies that will inform the dissertation, students benefit from a period of study at one of the many host institutions with which we have agreements.
The Graduate School participates in the Exchange Scholar Program, also known as the IvyPlus Exchange, with Berkeley, Brown, Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, MIT, Penn, Princeton and Stanford. This program enables doctoral candidates to register as students at one of these institutions while pursuing coursework and research for a term or an academic year. Students are eligible to participate in this exchange after they have completed their first year of coursework. Students should consult with their faculty adviser and DGS about their academic progress and funding before submitting the application. If you are interested in pursuing this exchange, please contact Associate Dean Jasmina Besirevic Regan for further information.
In addition, the Graduate School has established and continues to develop formal exchanges with a number of institutions internationally in cases where there are reciprocal academic benefits for faculty and graduate students. Doctoral students should consult with their faculty adviser and DGS about their academic progress and funding before submitting the application. If you are interested in pursuing one of these exchanges, please contact Associate Dean Jasmina Besirevic Regan for further information.
