1. MIT - Department od PhilosophyVisiting Scholar
The philosophy section of the department of linguistics and philosophy admits postdoctoral visitors, but its financial resources are limited. Visitors are expected to obtain their own support from research or study grants obtained from a foundation, university, or other agency.
Visiting scholars generally have their Ph.D. degree in philosophy. Visiting scholars are not enrolled in a degree program elsewhere.
Visiting student status is available to qualified students enrolled in a degree program at another university. Normally, such visiting students are engaged in their dissertation research or are writing their dissertations. In addition, federal regulation requires foreign visiting students to show financial support from a university or other institution covering at least half of the cost of their stay in order to be issued a "certificate of eligibility" for the J-1 visa. In other words, more than 50% of funding must come from a source other than personal or family.
Visiting students are not awarded academic credit for courses taken at MIT and are not eligible for on-campus student housing. Visiting students must be at MIT for at least three weeks and no longer than one year.
