To promote cutting-edge research, advance international presence and foster
a strategic alliance with the larger academic community, FLAME University
will invite mid-career to senior/distinguished scholars and practitioners

Scholars who are actively conducting interdisciplinary research and have
made substantive contributions in their fields are welcome to explore this
What can scholars expect under this programme?

This fully residential programme will host scholars from a minimum of 8
weeks to 24 weeks. Visiting scholars that are foreign nationals must
possess a valid visa that will enable them to visit FLAME University to
plan and execute their research. While FLAME University will provide all
necessary documentation for applying for an appropriate visa, the
responsibility of obtaining a visa will rest with the visiting scholar.

All scholars under this program will receive administrative and logistical
support (e.g., visa, accommodation, library access, internet, etc.) from
FLAME University during their visit. Additionally, FLAME University may
commit travel support (economy class roundtrip air fare) and a consolidated
honorarium to the scholars hosted under this programme.
Who can apply?

The candidate applying to the Visiting Scholars Program must meet the
following minimum criteria:

   - Must be an Associate Professor (or above) at an international
   university (preferably QS ranking <=100) . Candidates from India must be a

   an Institute of Eminence (IoE) by the Government of India.
   - Must have at least 5 publications in top journals in the area of
   proposed work.

How to apply?

FLAME. The FLAME faculty member (‘Host Faculty’) in collaboration with the
potential scholar would then submit a 1500-to-2000-word *joint proposal**to
the Vice Chancellor (VC), through the Dean. The proposal will be evaluated
based on its potential high-impact contribution to the field and its

   recent publications (with DOIs)
   - expected outcome(s): Clearly specify the anticipated deliverables
   (i.e., peer-reviewed journal articles; book contracts; chapters in edited
   volume; developing proposals for high-impact large international grants;
   patents etc.) expected out of this temporary engagement. Other academic
   activities as part of deliverables may include conducting joint research
   workshops/consortiums, certificate courses, teaching
   collaborations/co-teaching responsibilities (will include some grading
   duties for the scholar)

   options as the deliverables to be accomplished during the residency term
