The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is announcing the opening of its 2019-2020 Fellowship competition. The Center, located in the heart of Washington, DC, awards approximately 15-20 academic year residential fellowships to academics, practitioners, journalists, former public officials, and independent experts from any country with outstanding project proposals on global issues. The Center welcomes policy-relevant proposals which complement the Center's programming priorities. Within this framework, the Center supports projects that intersect with contemporary policy issues and provide the historical and/or cultural context for some of today's significant public policy debates.
Fellows have the opportunity, while working on their own research, to exchange ideas with scholars from all over the world and to interact with Center staff working on similar issues.
Applicants must hold a doctorate or have equivalent professional experience.
Fellows are provided stipends, round trip travel, private windowed offices, Library of Congress access, and part-time research assistants.
The Center encourages applicants to apply online. Additional information and the application are available at www.wilsoncenter.org/fellowships.
