Opportunities for Visiting Scholars

IBES is working to establish a formal funding program for visiting scholars. Until that program is established, interested scholars should contact Interim Director, Dov Sax, or Deputy Director, Meredith Hastings, with questions about opportunities for supporting visiting scholars.
