Visiting Scholar Administrative Fee
Please note that applications received after February 1, 2017 will be assessed a nonrefundable administrative fee of USD$400 for first time applicants and a nonrefundable renewal fee of USD$100 for extension applicants. Scholars whose applications are approved will receive a link via email to access the online payment site, Cashnet. The Cashnet payment site only accepts credit cards (VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Masterpass). Scholars unable to pay by credit card can submit payment via wire transfer. Please contact the program manager, Blessing Nuga (Nuga@tc.columbia.edu), for the TC wire transfer form. If paying by wire transfer, please allow 1-2 weeks for processing. Also note that some banks may charge an additional fee for international wire transfers; please check with your banking institution to verify this. Please make sure that the email address on your application is correct, as the Cashnet access link will be sent directly to this address.
