The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (Wilson Center) invites scholars, practitioners, journalists and public intellectuals to take part in 9-month residential international fellowship program. The primary aim of the fellowship program is to bridge the gap between the world of ideas and public policy, bringing them into creative contact, enriching the work of both, and enabling each to learn from the other.
The Center is inviting policy-relevant, non-advocacy fellowship proposals that address key challenges confronting the United States and the world.
