How We Can Help

Planning research abroad? Trying to figure out how to bring an international scholar to Emory? Interested in applying for international research and teaching experiences, but unsure where to start?

We're here to help.

Global Services offers a single point of contact at Emory for questions and issues that might arise during the course of conducting research abroad, hosting international scholars, or planning a global project. You can explore online resources on your own or contact Christine Rapalje, director of programs and services, for guidance through the process.

Our Fellowship Faculty Support provides centralized assistance for faculty who are interested in applying for international research and teaching experiences, such as those offered through Fulbright. We will advise you and help you to identify international partner universities, connect you with a broad network of past award recipients and application reviewers, and even help proofread and edit your application. Email to take advantage of expert help.

More than 2,600 international students from nearly 100 countries study at Emory, and the university employs 1,200 international scholars from around the world. International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) helps guide schools and departments through the immigration process to bring international students and scholars to Emory and to support that population once the individuals are here. 

On a more broad scale, the Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives works with interested faculty and schools to establish research and exchange agreements with institutions abroad. We aid in securing official Emory signatures so that the agreements are binding. Learn more about the process here.
