American University of Beirut

Affiliates Program
Out of our commitment to expanding and deepening knowledge production and to creating a space for the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas among researchers, civil society actors, and policymakers, our Institute has established an affiliation program divided into two different categories:​

  • Associate and University Fellows
  • Affiliate Scholars​


    Associate Fellows constitute the intellectual network of academics, researchers, professionals, and practitioners, that gravitate around the Institute, contributing to its work, knowledge production and activities. Associate Fellows are either resident or non-resident, while maintaining full professional affiliation to their respective institutions. They are invited to be part of our network of experts, based on thematic interest and needs, in line with the Institute's vision and development strategy, and with the final approval by the Director. Fellows are associated to the Institute on a voluntary basis, the specific conditions of which are decided between the Fellow and the Institute.

    Meanwhile, University Fellows are those belonging to various the departments, faculties and units of our university. University Fellows not only contribute in expanding and enriching the Institute's knowledge production and intellectual life, but highlight the organic link between our Institute and the American University of Beirut.​

    For the full list of our Fellows, visit IFI's fellows page. ​

    Affiliate Scholars

    A post-doctoral scholar or a PhD candidate who is finalizing their dissertation and whose current research project is relevant to one of the institute’s research programs. Although office space is currently unavailable for affiliates, the affiliation gives the scholar an institutional home at the university and the ability to access the AUB libraries, as well as other campus resources. Most importantly, this affiliation offers the scholar the opportunity to collaborate with researchers and staff from the institute and share their ongoing research for feedback and support. The duration of this affiliation may vary from a short stay up to one full academic year. To apply, visit the​ Affiliate Scholars application process page.​​
