Short-Term Fellowship Program

The Vanderbilt International Scholar Program created the Short-Term Visit program to assist faculty in bringing an international graduate student to a Vanderbilt laboratory for 4 -26 weeks in support of an ongoing research collaboration.

VISP supported all travel and VISA costs, as well as provided a housing subsidy of no more than $1,000.00, for international graduate students traveling to Nashville to perform collaborative research in a Vanderbilt biomedical science research laboratory.  

VISP did not provide stipend support, as it is expected that the student was receiving such support from their home institution. VISP did also not support the research costs of the visiting student. 


This program is no longer accepting nominations for short-term scholars.
