The IQS Scholar-in-Residence program is for emerging and prominent scholars who have a demonstrated, professional focus - as an instructor, researcher or practitioner - on Québec. Select scholars, chosen through a nomination and competitive application process, undertake residence at the Institute for a period of one week to one academic semester. Scholars are provided with an office, access to a computer, library facilities, and an honorarium. The Scholar-in-Residence program is open to citizens of the United States and Canada.
During their time spent as a Scholar-in-Residence at the Institute, scholars can undertake a variety of research projects, public lectures, and classroom teaching opportunities. Scholars are encouraged to utilize the rich variety of Québec content holdings, available at Plattsburgh State's Feinberg Library. A public reception as well as an official dinner, hosted by the President of the College, are featured elements of the Scholar-in-Residence program.
Recent Scholars-in-Residence have included Dr. Stephane Roussel, Dr. Daniel Weinstock, Dr. Louis Balthazar and Dr. Jocelyn Letourneau.
