Addis Ababa University Faculty Visitor Program

Established in 2018, the Emory University - Addis Ababa University (AAU) Faculty Visitor Program aims to advance Emory's eminence as a global research university with a diverse and inclusively excellent intellectual community by 1) deepening the relationship between Emory and AAU, 2) seeding new research collaborations, and 3) cultivating new Emory-AAU research connections.  

The Emory-AAU Faculty Visitor Program welcomes up to two faculty members from AAU for a short-term (2-6 weeks) stay at Emory University to explore new areas of research and collaboration with Emory counterparts. The visiting AAU faculty member will also be encouraged to give lectures and participate in colloquia. The Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives (GSI) will cover the costs of each visitor’s roundtrip flight to and from Emory, as well as lodging, per diem, and short-term health insurance expenses for the duration of their stay.

Emory faculty with existing faculty connections at Addis Ababa University - as well as those interested in establishing a research collaboration with an AAU counterpart - are welcome to apply. Faculty from any school or discipline are eligible to apply.

The next submission opportunity will be announced in spring 2021.
