The Visiting Scholar Program brings researchers from around the world to Loyola for a month to a year to study issues of concern to women. The primary purpose of the program is to provide research support for a scholar conducting research on women's issues. The Visiting Scholar is awarded an office within the lakeside center, a computer and Internet access, library privileges and the friendly support of a community of feminists. The Gannon Center is located on the second floor of Piper Hall. Its location on the northeast side of Chicago offers easy access to public transportation for research work in notable libraries and archives in the area as well as exceptional cultural opportunities. The center has a developing Women and Leadership Archives that may be helpful to some scholars.
The Visiting Scholar will share her research with members of the university community through a formal presentation to an invited audience sometime within her stay at the center. She is welcome to attend all events connected with the Center or the university.
There are no stipends or housing arrangements attached to the program at this time.
