Academy Recruits U.S. Scholars

Beginning in 2012, the McDonnell International Scholars Academy will recruit U.S. scholars as part of its incoming cohort. U.S. Scholars will comprise up to 25% of each cohort.

U.S. scholars are expected to participate in all the activities organized by the Academy with other international scholars from partner institutions. In addition, U.S. Scholars will spend at least three months during their time as a scholar at one of the 27 partner institutions in the Academy. This might involve activities such as working in a laboratory where collaborative research with Washington University is being conducted, fieldwork or advanced language training. To be eligible to apply to the McDonnell Academy as a U.S. Scholar, an individual must be a U.S. citizen and is expected to have spent most of his or her life and earned previous degrees in the U.S.
