The Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies offers scholars from schools and institutions other than UCLA the chance to carry on their research at UCLA as either a Visiting Scholar or a Distinguished Visiting Scholar.
Each year, CMRS sponsors Distinguished Visiting Scholars whose knowledge enriches the academic life of UCLA’s students and faculty, and promotes scholarship in the larger community. CMRS DVS present classes and seminars, participate in conferences and symposia, and deliver public lectures.
A list of former Distinguished Visiting Scholars is available in the Archive section of our website: www.cmrs.ucla.edu/archive/past_dvs.html.
UCLA Visiting Scholars are senior scholars and distinguished visitors who hold a doctoral degree or the foreign equivalent and who hold an appointment comparable to those of UCLA faculty, and are usually on temporary leave from their universities or research centers. They visit the campus for relatively short periods of time (no longer than one year), serve as senior researchers, collaborate on research projects and publications with faculty members, and pursue independent research. Visiting Scholars receive library privileges and access to special research collections. Appointments are honorary (non-salaried) and Visiting Scholars must be self-supported or have adequate support funds from outside of the university. Applicants must be nominated by CMRS and approved by the UCLA Graduate Division. Further information from the University is available at www.gdnet.ucla.edu/gss/postdoc/vsapply.htm.
Scholars working in the field of Medieval and Renaissance Studies may request to be considered by the Center as a Visiting Scholar.

Please note that the Center cannot provide housing or office space for its Visiting Scholars. Additionally, UCLA Visiting Scholars are not automatically granted access to non-UCLA research collections, such as those at the Getty Research Institute or the Huntington Library in San Marino. Scholars wishing to access non-UCLA collections should contact the specific institution directly about the applying for reader privileges.
