The one-year, full-time fellowship provides individuals with a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of security issues in the subcontinent, engage the South Asia policy community in Washington and the region, and experience working at a dynamic think tank with close senior staff interaction. Junior Fellows support the Stimson South Asia Program’s efforts to research, analyze, and inform policymakers about the evolving dynamics of deterrence, conflict risks, military modernization, and great-power competition in Southern Asia.

Fellows support research, publications, and programmatic efforts (including South Asian Voices, Strategic Learning, and public events and workshops). They receive professional development opportunities to engage with leading scholars and practitioners in the field; to represent Stimson at scholarly and policy convenings; to hone technical and analytical skills; and to conduct, present, and publish their own research.

Previous Junior Fellows have gone on to positions with Stimson and at other think tanks including CSIS and CFR, have joined the U.S. government, and have pursued advanced degrees at MIT, University of Chicago, Stanford, and Columbia.
