To support our areas of scholarship, Auburn regularly invites scholars from around the world. These colleagues work in our labs, in our classrooms, and contribute to the growth of our academic enterprise. Funding for scholars comes from a variety of internal and external sources, but OIP facilitates these colleagues through providing visa assistance, employment assistance, health insurance, assistance in locating housing, and inclusion in professional and cultural events.
While scholars come from many countries, OIP continues to work with academic units to increase the numbers of visitors coming from strategic partners and strategic countries. Auburn currently hosts scholars from Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Guatemala, India, Iran, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Turkey, and Uruguay.
