Institute of Current World Affairs Fellowship

Application Deadline:  March 1, 2018

The aim of the Institute of Current World Affairs (ICWA) Fellowship program is to cultivate deep expertise in foreign countries and cultures. We achieve this by supporting a Fellow over a two year period, during which she or he carries out an immersive program of self-designed, independent study abroad.

Candidates with a passion for their project country and who are sufficiently prepared to take advantage of the opportunity we offer, have the best chance of being awarded an ICWA Fellowship. Extensive professional experience in the proposed area is not always necessary; Fellowships are aimed at developing advanced knowledge and professional skills, not awarding research or reporting opportunities to those who already possess them. We are naturally drawn to areas of the world and topics that are less well understood and that are relevant to the United States. These could include thematic Fellowships, for example examining questions related to economic development or the environment that could be effectively pursued using the method of our Fellowships. Candidates are encouraged to browse ICWA’s archives to see the kind of projects that the Institute has supported.

Candidates must have the necessary language skills to allow to them to carry out their proposed project. Candidates must be under 36 years of age. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement, but candidates must show strong and credible ties to U.S. society. The Fellowships do not support degree programs at universities, the writing of books, or research projects aimed at answering specific questions in a particular academic discipline.
