2023 Harvard Law School’s IGLP/Stellenbosch University Global Scholars Academy

Deadline: October 7, 2022.

From January 16 – 20, 2023, Harvard Law School’s IGLP will collaborate with Stellenbosch University to convene the Global Scholars Academy in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

The Global Scholars Academy is an intensive residential experience designed to enable junior faculty and post-doctoral scholars to engage in sustained, interdisciplinary, peer-to-peer collaboration under the close mentorship of research faculty drawn from the world’s top universities. 

Building on the IGLP’s decade of successful workshops and Stellenbosch’s dedication to high-level interdisciplinary research, the Global Scholars Academy will engage a growing community of scholars developing new thinking about the world’s most pressing policy challenges. While in residence, participants will workshop their ongoing research, review current scholarship developments, reconsider canonical texts, and network with colleagues from across the world.
