The title of Visiting Scholar is reserved for established scholars of tenure rank in senior universities, or the equivalent. Visiting Scholars do not receive a stipend in their appointment. The appointment is ordinarily made for maximum one year and minimum eight weeks. The nominating faculty member is responsible for providing equipment and office space.
A recommendation for the appointment of Visiting Scholar originates with the faculty member, and the visitor must sign an Intellectual Property Agreement. All nominations are subject to the review and approval of the Office of the Vice President for Research.
Visas - If you wish to invite an international scholar or researcher to the department and request visa documents for the visitor's visa application and entry to the U.S. from the International Office, you must make arrangements at least 3-4 months in advance to ensure that the visa application is processed in time. Please contact admin [at] cs [dot] utexas [dot] edu for assistance.
Payments to International Visitors - Please note that international visitors may not receive reimbursement for travel expenses or be paid a stipend/honorarium without the appropriate visa. Prior to making arrangements with a visitor, contact accounting [at] cs [dot] utexas [dot] edu to ensure that payment/reimbursement is allowed.
