Visiting Fellowship Programme

The Centre’s Visiting Fellowship programme enables researchers to spend a period of time at the LSE Latin America and Caribbean Centre.

Visiting Fellows are expected to play an active part in the intellectual life of the Centre, and prospective applicants should familiarise themselves with our research. Applications will be considered by the Centre Director in the first instance in order to be nominated to the School.

Practical arrangements:

Duration: Fellowships will normally run for a maximum of three years. Fellows are encouraged to spend time at the Centre, subject to agreement with the Centre Director or Manager.

Status: The title of Visiting Fellow is given to individuals from outside the School. Visiting Fellows have access to the facilities of the LSE as a whole including the Library, and will be provided with a LSE login and email address. Fellows will have access to hot-desk space subject to availability.

Funding: The Centre aims to put in place a funded programme to enable those with a genuine and active commitment to the region from around the world to spend time at LSE and engage with the Centre’s initiatives. Currently, however, we can only consider applications from those who already have (or expect to have) adequate financial support.

Accommodation and Visas: the School is not able to make any arrangements for living accommodation or visa applications. The accommodation for students website, however, provides useful guidance on finding private rented housing.

How to Apply 

Visiting Fellowships nominations require a review and selection process and applications are considered for approval at intervals throughout the academic year.

Your application should include the following:

  1. A curriculum vitae
    This should include information about your research or practice experience.
  2. An application form
    The application form asks for information about your planned research programme, and the ways in which you expect the Centre to benefit from the collaboration.
  3. Academic/employment reference
    You are asked to arrange for a reference in support of your application. The reference may be sent directly to the Centre Manager. 

Timetable for considering applications
The two-stage assessment process takes approximately 8 weeks. Applicants should keep this in mind when considering the start date for their proposed fellowship.
