Global Scholars Academy

The Global Scholars Academy is an intensive residential experience designed to enable junior faculty and post-doctoral scholars to engage in sustained, interdisciplinary, peer-to-peer collaboration under the close mentorship of research faculty drawn from the world’s top universities.

Building on the Institute for Global Law & Policy (IGLP) decade of successful workshops and Stellenbosch’s dedication to high-level interdisciplinary research, the Global Scholars Academy will engage a growing community of scholars developing new thinking about the world’s most pressing policy challenges.

The 2023 Academy will offer a unique interdisciplinary curriculum and will include thematic minicourses, plenary lectures, and writing workshops.
