Visiting Scholars


NOTICE: Due to a transition in technology systems at The University of Texas at Austin, LLILAS Benson will be unable to process visiting research/scholar applications from October 22, 2018, through November 25, 2018. While you may submit your application to us during that time, we will be unable to review it until after November 26, 2018, and approvals might take longer than normal for a period of time after that. We apologize for any inconvenience.

LLILAS welcomes visiting scholars who visit campus either by faculty invitation or on an independent basis.

Visiting Scholar and Research Fellow Programs

Due to the outstanding Benson Latin American Collection and the large and distinguished Latin Americanist faculty affiliated with the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS), many scholars choose to spend sabbatical or other research leave at The University of Texas at Austin. To accommodate these researchers, LLILAS offers Visiting Scholar and Research Fellow programs.

Visiting Resource Professors

Visiting Resource Professors (VRPs) are invited by UT Latin Americanist faculty members to lecture for one to two weeks in either undergraduate or graduate classes.
