Visiting Scholar Programme

Visiting Scholar Programme

At Ilisimatusarfik, we welcome visiting scholars - and for that reason we have developed our Visiting Scholar Programme.

As a visiting scholar part of the programme, you are considered a guest of the university for a temporary period of 01 - 6 months. 

If you would like to become a visiting scholar at Ilisimatusarfik, we can assist you with the following:

  • Finding a local researcher willing to help you with a research project (1)
  • Sponsor letter from Ilisimatusarfik
  • Visa application (2)
  • Finding suitable accommodation
  • Acces to Ilisimatusarfik campus
  • Possible office space
  • Internet access
  • Printer access

(1): visiting scholars must be sponsored by a local Ilisimatusarfik researcher, and it is the responsibility of the prospective visiting scholar to contact appropriate researchers and arrange for such sponsorship

(2): non-Nordic citizens, including EU citizens who stay for longer than three months, may have to apply for a visa


Unfortunately, Ilisimatusarfik cannot offer any financial assistance as part of the Visiting Scholar Programme, so visiting scholars are to find financial arrangements elsewhere.


As part of our Visiting Scholar Programme at Ilisimatusarfik, visiting scholars are encouraged to do a public lecture during the stay, and to write an article for our website and newsletter.

After successfull completion of the Visiting Scholar Programme period, Ilisimatusarfik issues a Visiting Scholar Diploma to the visiting scholar in question.
