The East-West Center in Washington (EWCW) provides three-month fellowships for individuals from the Indo-Pacific region, including the United States, to undertake research on topics of relevance to contemporary US-Indo-Pacific relations. During their residency, selected fellows will be able to engage with officials at various US departments and agencies and experts at the EWCW as well as other DC think tanks and universities. They will also be able to attend EWCW seminars and events around Washington, DC. EWCW encourages fellows to engage with the Washington policy community, including participating in events at other institutions or agencies; so long as it does not interfere with the fellows’ duties and the East-West Center in Washington is named as their affiliation.
The fellowship includes a monthly stipend while in residence at EWCW, office space and accompanying resources, and round-trip economy airfare to Washington, DC. Fellows are responsible for securing their own housing and medical insurance coverage during their term of residency (EWCW will provide suggestions for accommodation options).
