International Visiting Scholars

The Humphrey School recognizes the importance of welcoming scholars from around the United States and the world who enrich our community. The diversity of views and experiences at the Humphrey School enhances our ability to create change in our communities, the nation and the world. Each year the School is able to host a limited number of visiting scholars. We believe that a match of research interests between visiting scholars and HHH faculty contributes to the richness of the experience for visiting scholars and provides valuable contributions to our community. Visiting scholars do not hold academic appointments

McKnight Fellowship

We also administer fellowship opportunities sponsored by the McKnight Foundation for local Minnesota residents to attend the Salzburg Global Seminar (SGS).
