As an essential part of the center’s mission to provide opportunities for students, faculty and the public to learn about Europe, European integration, and the European Union, the Center for European Studies welcomes scholars from around the world to participate in its Visiting Scholar Program. The Visiting Scholar Program targets three distinct types of visiting scholars whose research dovetails with that of leading faculty members at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill:
- EU Fellows
- CES Visiting Scholars in Residence
- German Academic Exchange (DAAD) Professors
The Visiting Scholars Program at the Center for European Studies mutually enriches its participants by expanding research networks, allowing for collaborative projects, and broadening the international visibility and impact of their work.
European Union Fellows
European Union Fellows are EU officials based at universities across the United States for up to one year. The Fellows conduct research, teach courses on EU themes at their host university, and give frequent outreach talks at other universities and community organizations throughout their region.

CES Visiting Scholars
The Center for European Studies Visiting Scholars in Residence program affords scholars at various stages in their academic career the opportunity to spend extended periods of time at UNC-Chapel Hill. This opportunity allows for research and professional development for visiting scholars, strengthening ties between CES and departments with similar goals in the US and abroad. Visitors will benefit from UNC-Chapel Hill’s world class library system, working with the center’s TransAtlantic Masters students and affiliated doctoral students, and partnering with leading faculty in various EU fields. CES Visiting Scholars in Resident are fully integrated in the activities of the center’s activities, participating in working groups, giving guest lectures and public talks, and teaching courses, when appropriate.
German Academic Exchange (DAAD) Professors
DAAD professors are German academics who teach at North American universities for up to five years in a wide variety of fields such as political science, history, anthropology and philosophy. The Center for European Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill is pleased to host DAAD professors on a regular basis. More about DAAD Visiting Professorships.
