The East-West Center is now accepting applications from scholars and analysts who wish to undertake policy-relevant research and writing on issues of key relevance to the US-Japan partnership, including diplomatic, politico-security, economic, social and international fields. We especially welcome applicants specializing on Japan’s economy or US-Japan collaborative economic ties. Funded by the Center for Global Partnership (CGP) at the Japan Foundation, the fellowship finances a three-month OR six-month residence at the East-West Center in Washington, D.C. While in residence, the fellows will complete articles or a monograph to be considered for publication, such as the East-West Center’s Asia Pacific Bulletin series, the Asia Pacific Issues series, or the Policy Studies series.
-Applicants must have a minimum of a M.A. degree in a relevant field. -Applicants without a Ph.D. will be considered based on their relevant professional experience (though a minimum of an M.A. is required, academic degrees will be one but not the only selection criteria). -Applicants must be of either American or Japanese citizenship and based in the United States. -Under exceptional circumstances, non-American or non-Japanese nationals with permanent residency in the United States and who specialize on Japan will be considered. -Finally, under rare circumstances, American or Japanese citizens residing in Japan may be considered for a fellowship.
