Lamar Visiting Scholars 

Charlie and Carole Lamar  Charlie and Carole Lamar, founders and sponsors of the Lamar Visiting Scholars program.

The Lamar Visiting Scholars program promotes media and public affairs research and creative activity that benefits the Manship School, LSU community, alumni, and broader mass communication community. The Lamar Scholar’s year-long tenure at LSU can include working with the Reilly Center to produce public events, conducting research, and developing creative works designed for public consumption, such as blog posts or white papers, related to their research. 

The Reilly Center hosts two types of Lamar Visiting Scholars on a rotating basis. Recent Ph.D. graduates, or post-doc professionals, who focus their research on timely matters in disciplines such as Mass Communication, Political Science, Computer Science, or a related field. Nationally-prominent professionals with distinguished careers in journalism, advertising, public relations, or political communication are eligible to participate as Professional Lamar Visiting Scholars.   

Charlie and Carole Lamar, long-time supporters of the Manship School, established the program.
