CGCS is no longer an active center. For opportunities in global communication research, please check out the Annenberg School’s Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication.


CGCS’s Visiting Scholar program provides opportunities for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and young faculty members to further their academic careers and participate in the intellectual life of the Annenberg School. If you are interested in contacting one of our current visiting scholars, or are interested in visiting CGCS, please contact us. For questions about the program, please first refer to our Visiting Scholar FAQ.


CGCS Visiting Scholar Program 

Our program offers visiting scholars dedicated time to focus on their own research, but also the chance to interact with the Annenberg and Penn communities, all while spending time in historic Philadelphia.

Scholars are expected to engage with Annenberg faculty and students, attend events and colloquia at the Annenberg School (and classes if they so desire), present their research at a seminar, and produce a short research paper as a result of their stay.

All applicants should have excellent English skills prior to arriving at CGCS. Interested applicants must arrange their own funding source. Additionally, while scholars have the chance to audit Annenberg courses, they are unable to take classes for credit.

Please note the program is highly competitive as we offer a limited number of visiting scholar positions.
