IAPC Visiting Scholars

In accordance with its tripartite mission-to conduct research and scholarship in educational philosophy, to offer curriculum and teacher preparation in Philosophy for Children and to contribute to initiatives of educational reform toward inquiry-based pedagogy-the IAPC periodically invites visiting scholars for periods of weeks, months, semesters, or an entire academic year. These invitations may be made at the initiation of the Institute or the scholar.

The IAPC Provides Visiting Scholars:

  • A faculty advisor
  • Consultation with other faculty members
  • Professional venues for their work (e.g., talks, workshops & publications)
  • A temporary MSU email account
  • Certificate and letter of recognition

The IAPC Does Not Provide:

  • Salary
  • Housing or living expenses
  • Travel expenses
  • Health Insurance

Visiting Scholar Charges

The cost of the Visiting Scholar Program depends on the length of the visit. (A portion of the cost may be waived if it is determined that the benefit to the IAPC from the scholar's work will likely outweigh the amount of the fees normally charged.)

One week $195.00
One month $780.00
One semester $2,925.00
