The Malaysia Sustainable Cities Scholars

MSCP visiting scholars are selected each year by the MSCP university partners. They must commit to spend the Fall semester in Malaysia working on one of the questions on our Research Agenda. We match them up with university partners in Malaysia as well as with agencies, organizations and relevant community groups. They spend the spring semester at MIT working with faculty and advanced graduate students to generate research papers (for publication in our new ejournal or in other scholarly journals) and preparing teaching videos. We are building an interdisciplinary network of Visiting Scholars which now covers 22 countries.
