Woodrow Wilson Opens Fellowships to Journalists


The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is calling on journalists, scholars and public officials worldwide to apply for a fellowship on public policy. The fellowship is a nine month residential program in Washington, D.C.

Fellows will conduct research and write in their areas of interest, while interacting with policymakers, 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.

Fellowships include a maximum stipend of US$85,000 and 75 percent of health insurance premiums for fellows who elect Center coverage, along with travel to and from the fellowship location.

The Center hosts around 160 scholars yearly 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.

Deadline for application is October 1, 2013.
