Hosting a Visiting Scholar
Below is information for faculty members and departments interested in hosting a visiting scholar. We must receive both the Prospective Scholar Information Form and the signed Request for Form DS-2019 in order to process a DS-2019, which the scholar must have in order to apply for a J visa. If you have any questions, please feel free to call (330-672-7980) or email ( firstname.lastname@example.org) ISSS.
For an overview of the scholar request process, please read our Scholar Request Guide.
Both forms are fillable PDFs and can be all or mostly completed on the computer.
- Prospective Scholar Information Form (to be filled out by the scholar)
- Request for Form DS-2019 for J-1 Visiting Scholar (to be completed by the hosting department)
