Consulting Scholars form the intellectual and research core of the Taylor Institute as a space that supports international research.


Scholars are expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Institute, to engage with each other and the Franklin community, and most of all, to engage with the current issues and societal challenges that are pertinent to a broader global community.


Consulting Scholars are appointed for three years, renewable indefinitely.


The Taylor Institute provides Scholars with an institutional academic affiliation, through the Institute and Franklin University Switzerland, as well as a way for Scholars’ research to reach a broader audience.
