The Information Systems Research Program (ISRP) hosts a number of visitors to the UCLA Anderson School under its newly instituted Visiting Fellows Program. The ISRP's Visiting Fellows include both Industrial and Academic Fellows. Industrial Fellows typically visit under the provisions of an IS Research Associate membership, while Academic Fellows include Visiting Scholars and advanced doctoral candidates from universities around the world.

Industrial Fellows are typically employed in new technology research and development. They visit for one to two weeks, and present their work and interact with faculty and students in a variety of venues, while building important relationships for the future.

Visiting Scholars are often on sabbatical leave from their home institutions and are in residence at the Anderson School for a period up to one year. They typically engage in a specific research project during their stay, often in collaboration with Anderson faculty.

Doctoral Candidates visit for one term or more and are usually registered as students while here. They typically have passed their qualifying exams and are preparing or working on their dissertation, while being advised during their stay by Anderson faculty.

Applications to the ISRP's Visiting Fellows Program are welcome throughout the year. To apply, simply submit a letter of application specifying the purpose and timing of your proposed visit, your curriculum vitae, and an accompanying letter of endorsement from a sponsoring Anderson faculty member.
