Honorary Fellow Procedure
This document describes the steps/process for requesting and hiring an Honorary Fellow.
1. Prospective scholar contacts faculty member he/she wants to work with and submits information via Honorary Fellow form on ALC website.
2. Faculty will request approval from the Faculty-Staff Committee.
3. If approved by the Faculty-Staff Committee, Department Administrator will send draft appointment letter and scholar's CV to the L&S Human Resources representative for approval.
4. Once approved by L&S, a department staff member will send the approved appointment letter and the J1 application information to the scholar, and follow the appropriate steps to submit the J1 application to IFSS.
After arrival date of scholar is established, department staff should submit a JEMS hire request to L&S so that the scholar is in the HR system when they arrive. Once they are in the HR system, they will be able to obtain a Wiscard. Scholars must check in with IFSS as soon as possible after arrival and sign up for health insurance in the SHIP office.
