Visiting Global Scholars

The Visiting Global Scholars program is designed to encourage faculty to engage in international research, assist faculty in the development of international teaching materials, and enrich BYU students by promoting international perspectives.

The GBC assists in hosting visiting scholars and uses its network of foreign universities and exchange partners to identify opportunities for BYU Marriott faculty members to travel abroad. The GBC will help co-sponsor up to five exchange scholars per year.
