Visiting Fellows

Each year YDS appoints as visiting fellows a limited number of professors, ministers, priests, or otherwise qualified persons of advanced professional status; these scholars will have clearly articulated research projects that necessitate their presence on campus, usually to work with the Divinity Library’s special holdings or to collaborate with a YDS faculty member.

Appointment may be for up to twelve months. Visiting fellows have access to the libraries of the University and may audit classes with the permission of the instructor. They are not candidates for degrees and receive no academic credit. A nonrefundable application fee of $50 is required. There is a registration fee of $750 per six-month period. Visiting fellows are not eligible for financial aid from the School, and no stipends are available.

Inquiries about appointment should be addressed to Jan Hagens, Director of the Visiting Fellows Program, Yale Divinity School, 409 Prospect Street, New Haven CT 06511-2167, or
