Visiting Scholars

The Tucker Center offers opportunities for Visiting Scholars from the U.S. and abroad to carry out their individual research as well as to collaborate with Tucker Center affiliates. The Tucker Center particularly welcomes scholars who wish to collaborate on a specific project during their residence. Visiting Scholars typically work on projects related to the Tucker Center’s current programmatic and research lines, but also welcome those whose work is parallel or complementary. These research projects, and other work conducted by the Visiting Scholars, constitute an important part of the Tucker Center’s ongoing effort to make a difference in the lives of girls and women through sport and physical activity. Visiting Scholars are funded from external or personal sources.
