Brown University sponsors a variety of active partnerships and exchanges with other institutions and programs that provide opportunities for students and faculty to find host institutions or to fund research travel all over the world. Brown's Office of Global Engagement looks to the university's faculty and students to both strengthen existing partnerships and develop new exchanges that deepen and extend their own research, and also provide opportunities for visiting students, scholars, and faculty to visit Brown. The Institute similarly emphasizes not only the importance of supporting our students' travel and research opportunities, but also the value of enhancing our community through regularly hosting scholars from around the country and around the world, for both short and extended stays. 

Within the United States, the University participates in an Exchange Scholar Program that enables advanced graduate students to study for one or two semesters in the graduate school of participating institutions, including the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale. The exchange provides graduate students with the opportunity to draw upon the particular strengths of the exchange institution and to explore their discipline from a different perspective. In recent years, doctoral students in Brown's Archaeology and the Ancient World program have integrated courses from Harvard's Egyptology program and Yale's ancient languages offerings even while completing their other coursework at Brown -- a combination made possible by a reciprocal tuition agreement among the universities and the easy commutes between these campuses.

The Office of Global Engagement sponsors a number of global opportunities for research and funding, including the Global Mobility Program: Graduate Research Fellowship, which covers the base pay of a Brown University doctoral student's fellowship stipend and provides an additional $650 to assist with travel costs, for students seek to conduct pre-dissertation or dissertation research abroad during one summer or academic semester during which they would otherwise be obligated to be on campus for teaching assistantship or proctorship responsibilities. Brown is also among the leading institutions for Fulbright fellowships, and provides support and advising to students during the application process.

The Joukowsky Institute, often in partnership with other departments or programs at Brown, maintains active institutional affiliations with a number of relevant international centers and institutions, including:

The Institute is one of just three American institutions to participate in the Archaeological Institute of America's (AIA) exchange program with the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (DAI), which has enabled the Institute to bring German visiting scholars to Brown over the past decade, as well as providing opportunities for both faculty and graduate students from Brown to be hosted by DAI facilities not just in Germany but also in Spain and Italy. Brown's Graduate School has also cultivated many additional international partnerships with universities on nearly every continent.  In addition, doctoral students at Brown have recently received residential fellowships to attend or visit American Academy in Rome (AAR), American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA), British School at Athens (BSA), and Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute (CAARI).
