The Woodrow Wilson International Center is currently offering a number of residential fellowships for scholars from any countries. The winning fellows are expected to spend nine months doing relevant research in Washington and Wilson Center staff. This year, up to 20 awards will be granted. Each of those covers a range of benefits as named below. The application deadline is 1 October each year.
Each year, the Center hosts a number of scholars who conduct independent research on national and/or international issues addressing key public policy challenges. Through its scholars, the Center enriches crucial policy debates and provides a platform for scholars in the tradition of President Wilson to bring the worlds of policy and ideas together. In addition to its flagship international Fellowship program, the Center also hosts scholars selected through its individual programs. Through an international competition, the Center offers 9-month residential fellowships. Fellows conduct research and write in their areas of expertise, while interacting with policymakers in Washington and Wilson Center staff. The Center accepts non-advocacy, policy-relevant, fellowship proposals that address key policy challenges facing the United States and the world.
The winning fellows may expect to receive allowances, round trip travel for fellows. If spouses and/or dependent children will reside with the fellow for the entire fellowship period, money for their travel will also be included. In addition to stipends and travel allowances, the Center provides 75 percent of health insurance premiums for fellows who elect Center coverage and for their accompanying family members.
