DRC Welcomes Long-term Visiting Scholars

​​​​​

Visiting Scholars are individuals who come from another institution to DRC for a period of time lasting more than (1) week. We are pleased to welcome visiting scholars and officials from around the world who may be interested in using our extensive specialized disaster library (presently consisting of some 70,000 documents), who will want to pursue their own research or to work with our faculty and students on collaborative research projects. Visiting scholars can receive a University of Delaware ID card for access to Morris Library (the University's main library on campus), computers, the internet, and parking. For general information, visit UD's Office of International Students & Scholars Information for Visiting Scholars.

Apply to be a DRC visiting scholar! 

Complete this online application. 

Applicants who are meeting specific funding deadlines must contact DRC at least three (3) months in advance of the due date. We cannot guarantee that applications submitted within three (3) months will be reviewed and processed in time to meet the deadline.

DRC often receives dozens of requests from students and faculty applying as part of the China Scholarship Council program. To ensure that DRC is accessible to scholars from a broad range of countries, those applying from China for stays over (2) months in duration should apply by October 15th the year prior to the proposed visit.

Cross-Cultural Collaboration

One of the elements that makes the DRC a vibrant center of research is its frequent hosting of visiting scholars. Researchers from around the world travel to the DRC to interact with our faculty researchers and graduate students, and more often than not, to utilize the E. L. Quarantelli Resource Collection.

The Resource Collection not only provides a unique and vast collection of information to visiting scholars but also benefits from their direct contributions of material.  Read more about DRC's cross-cultural collaborations with visiting scholars.
