Woodrow Wilson Fellowships 2001-2002

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars announces the opening of its 2001-2002 fellowship competition. The Center annually awards approximately 21 academic year, residential fellowships to scholars and practitioners with outstanding project proposals in the social sciences and humanities on national and/or international issues/topics that intersect with questions of public policy. Fellows work from offices at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. where they interact with policymakers and with Wilson Center staff who are working on similar issues.

Length of appointment: Fellows are generally in residence for the entire U.S. academic year (September through May), although a few fellowships are available for shorter periods of time, with a minimum of four months.

Eligibility: For academic applicants, eligibility is limited to the postdoctoral level and, normally, to applicants with publications beyond the Ph.D. dissertation. For other applicants, an equivalent level of professional achievement is expected. The Center welcomes applications from a broad range of scholars, including women and minorities.

Citizenship: Applications from any country are welcome. All applicants should have a good command of spoken English.

Stipend: The Center tries to ensure that the stipend provided under the fellowship, together with other sources of support (e.g., grants or sabbatical allowances), approximate a Fellow's regular salary.

The application deadline is October 1, 2000.
