Visiting Programs

The Program for Economic Research sponsors two different channels for visiting economists to come to Columbia's Department of Economics: the Invited Visitors Program and the Visiting Fellows Program.


Invited Visitors

The Invited Visitors Program brings visiting researchers and scholars in the field to Columbia both to present their recent work and ideas in seminar workshops and to serve as a resource for Columbia faculty and students; they are specially selected to enhance the Department's network of researchers. Invitations are made by Columbia faculty to distinguished guests for one week during term. The program operates by unsolicited invitation only.

PER Visiting Fellows

A limited number of PER Visiting Fellowships for select applicants are made available in each academic year. Fellows will normally already hold a doctoral degree in economics and will have the opportunity to participate fully in the academic activities of the Department and the University.
