Applications are open for the UNU-WIDER Visiting Scholars Program 2022/2023. The Visiting Scholars Programme gives qualified scholars an opportunity to research topics related to development and/or global economic issues, and to participate in UNU-WIDER activities.

Scholars typically spend a 2-3 months ‘sabbatical’ at United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER). During this time, they prepare one or more papers to be considered for publication in the WIDER working paper series and present a seminar in their field of research.

Funding for UNU-WIDER Visiting Scholars 

  • UNU-WIDER provides medical insurance (for medical and hospital services resulting from sickness and accident during your stay at UNU-WIDER).
  • A monthly stipend of EUR 3,000 as a contribution towards travel, visa, accommodation and other out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Visiting scholars may apply for a supplementary grant to cover high travel costs (incl. visa) if they exceed EUR 1,200 (lowest economy class fare). The programme does not cover expenses related to dependents.

Eligibility for UNU-WIDER Visiting Scholars 

  • Applicants should have a PhD degree in economics or a development-related discipline. A good publication record is an added advantage.
  • Applications from suitably qualified early-career, female, and developing country researchers are particularly encouraged.

They prefer applicants whose research overlaps with UNU-WIDER current research programme, but they remain open to proposals on all aspects of development.
