Fellowship Opportunities at the The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

Tuesday, August 18, 2020   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Kinsey Brooke

Through an international competition, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars offers 9-month residential fellowships. The Wilson Center invites scholars, practitioners, journalists, and public intellectuals to take part in its flagship international Fellowship Program. Fellows conduct research and write in their areas of interest, while interacting with policy makers in Washington, in addition to Wilson Center staff and other scholars in residence. The Center accepts policy-relevant, non-advocacy fellowship proposals that address key challenges confronting the United States and the world.

The Center awards approximately 15-20 residential fellowships each year. Fellows will be affiliated with one or more of the Wilson Center's programs/projects. 

Eligibility:

  • Citizens or permanent residents from any country (applicants from countries outside the United States must hold a valid passport and be able to obtain a J-1 visa even if they are currently in the United States). Please contact the Center if you have any questions about your eligibility to obtain a J1 visa;
  • Citizens or permanent residents from any country (applicants from countries outside the United States must hold a valid passport and be able to obtain a J-1 visa even if they are currently in the United States);
  • Academic candidates must be at the post-doctoral level and have published a book or monograph beyond the Ph.D. dissertation;
  • Practitioners or policymakers with an equivalent level of professional achievement;
  • English proficiency as the Center is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas among its fellows.

Ineligibility:

  • Applicants working on a degree (even if the degree is to be awarded prior to the proposed fellowship year);
  • Proposals of a partisan or advocacy nature;
  • Primary research in the natural sciences;
  • Projects that create musical composition or dance;
  • Projects in the visual arts;
  • Projects that are the rewriting of doctoral dissertations;
  • The editing of texts, papers, or documents;
