Working Together For Inclusive Growth

Visiting Scholar Program

The Institute will annually invite selected scholars to pursue research while in residence at the Minneapolis Fed. These scholars will all have Ph.D.’s in the Social Sciences or have a career background that establishes their ability to conduct high-level, peer-reviewed scholarly research. Scholars will be selected based upon a research proposal related to the Institute’s mission.

The application period for the 2018-2019 cohort of Visiting Scholars has closed.
