• East-West Center’s 2018 Asia Studies Fellowship

    East-West Fellowship

    The Public Affairs Section is pleased to announce an exchange program opportunity, the East-West Center’s 2018 Asia Studies Fellowship. The deadline for applications is January 2, 2018.

    This fellowship supports scholars and analysts who wish to undertake research and writing on topics of relevance to contemporary US-Asia policy; in particular, proposals regarding key challenges in U.S.-Asia relations and possible responses and approaches to addressing those challenges.

    The fellowship finances residencies for a period of three months in Washington, D.C. at the East-West Center in Washington. Residencies may begin as early as March 2018 and extend through September 2018.

    The fellowship includes a monthly stipend and round trip economy airfare to Washington, D.C. Fellows will complete articles or a monograph and must give a seminar on their research topic.

    Applicants with or without a Ph.D. will be considered; those without a Ph.D. will be considered based on their relevant professional experience. While applications from candidates of all backgrounds and career levels will be considered, emphasis will be given to:

    • Next generation applicants who would benefit in their academic or professional careers from such an opportunity
    • Those who have not yet had the opportunity to operate in Washington D.C. and engage with the local academic and policy making communities
    • Projects which would greatly benefit from the resources afforded by a residency in Washington D.C.
