Research Affiliates

The University of Georgia’s collaborators and affiliates are important contributors to our research community.

If you are a remote research collaborator we may be able to assign you a UGA identity as a Research Affiliate after reviewing your request and receiving the applicable UGA faculty sponsor and sponsoring unit approvals.  This status is for those that are not physically coming to any UGA campus and the purpose is a research collaboration with a UGA faculty member.

Alternatively, if you will physically come to any UGA campus to collaborate or participate in research with a faculty member (and it is not part of an official UGA program), then you will need to request that your UGA faculty contact process your visit via the Visiting Researcher/Scholar procedure. Please email with questions about this process.

If you are physically coming to any UGA campus to participate in research and it is part of an official UGA program, then your situation describes a “Program Participant” and your program director should contact the UGA Card Office to process your visit.

Research Affiliate status may be requested via the Research Affiliate Request Form and can be completed by the person requesting this status.
