Inviting Visiting Researchers to Campus
Academic departments or faculty members may wish to invite students or scholars from abroad to conduct research or participate in an internship at the University outside of a Notre Dame degree program. Please see the categories below for more information:
Undergraduate Researchers and Interns
Departments and faculty members may invite undergraduate students to conduct research or intern at the University of Notre Dame. In most cases, undergraduate researchers will be issued documentation to enter the United States in either the J-1 Non-degree Student category or the J-1 Student Intern category. For more information, contact Lisa Shroyer at email@example.com.
Guest Researchers (Non-Student/Non-Faculty) and Post-Doctoral Scholars
An individual who has completed at least a bachelor’s degree in his or her home country and will not be classified as a student for University administrative purposes should most likely enter the country as a J-1 research visitor in partnership with the Office for Postdoctoral Scholars. For more information, visit the J-1 Scholars section of the ISSA website.
Seminars, Conferences and Workshops
Individuals who will travel to the University of Notre Dame for short periods of time (less than 90 days) to attend lectures, conferences or workshops may enter the United States using a B-1 Visitor Visa.
For immigration purposes, this category requires no formal documentation from the University of Notre Dame, although participants often carry letters issued by the initiating department that may provide a clear description of the purpose of their visit for officers at U.S. consulates and ports of entry.
Certain visitors to the University who will conduct their own independent research without supervision or oversight from Notre Dame faculty or staff members may also be eligible to use this category.
For questions or more information, please contact International Student & Scholar Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nicole Lee will be attending the University of Notre Dame this fall, along with ten other students from the GCS program.
When Kacey Hengesbach began her undergraduate career at Notre Dame, she didn’t imagine that it would include traveling 8,000 miles to Ahmedabad, India. But thanks to a new course created by Neeta Verma, she had the chance to spend three weeks there last summer, working collaboratively with students from India’s National Institute of Design. Hengesbach and the other students in Verma’s Social Design course continued their partnership with the NID students throughout the fall semester, hosting them for a two-week visit to Notre Dame in September and communicating via Skype and email for the remainder of the course.
