General Information

The Visiting Scholar Program enables senior physicians and/or scientists who are experts in nephrology and related disciplines to spend from 6 weeks to 3 months at an institution in the developing world.

Visiting Scholars focus primarily on ‘hands-on’ activities, which have the potential of improving the quality of patient care, education, and/or research in fields relevant to the kidney at the host institution.

Examples of eligible activities include:

  • assistance in establishing a new clinical program such as continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
  • establishing new research programs or new research laboratory techniques
  • providing instruction in basic clinical and scientific techniques of relevance to the host institution or country.

Reasonable expenses related to travel, accommodation, and cost of living related to the Visiting Scholarship will be reimbursed by ISN



The stipend is at the discretion of the ISN, after approval of the proposed budget by the Secretary General. All applications should be submitted to the

ISN Global Headquarters 

and must include a description of the program, its objectives, a budget, personal references and a letter of acceptance from the host institution.
