Candidates for the VRF Program should have recognized expertise, proven publication record in their field, clearly defined research project that aligns with existing INSS research, and an INSS sponsor. All application packages should include a curriculum vitae, biography, proposed research topic, and an application letter for consideration.
- INSS Sponsor: Visiting Research Fellows must be sponsored by an INSS Senior/Distinguished Research Fellow. The INSS fellow will oversee the VRF’s research project and related activities.
- The application letter should identify the research plan and deliverables to INSS. The application letter also should identify the resources, if any, the sponsor and Visiting Research Fellow anticipate may be required, and how the sponsor and/or applicant plan to obtain them. A sample application letter can be viewed here.
VRF applications are accepted twice annually; February 15 and August 15. Applications received after either deadline will be reviewed during the next application review window. For example, an application received 16 February will be reviewed when the Committee meets to review applications following the 15 August deadline.
