IonE Visiting Scholars

The Visiting Scholars program aims to extend the reach of IonE and its researchers and to welcome external visitors who can enrich our community of environmental research and education. IonE Visiting Scholars provide a link between one or more external institutions—including academia, the government, not-for-profit institutions, and corporations—and the University of Minnesota.

**PLEASE NOTE: Due to extended work-from-home status and that IonE is currently searching for staff in the role of affiliate relations, we are pausing our Visiting Scholar program for Q1 of 2022. We anticipate opening up this process again in Spring/Summer 2022, when we will have a more concrete understanding of in-person engagement and an engaging suite of programming to offer Visiting Scholars. Please watch this site for further information.**
