January 18th, 2012

The East-West Center is now accepting applications from scholars and analysts who wish to undertake policy-relevant research and writing in Washington, D.C., in two programs.

Japan Studies Fellowship

This fellowship, funded by the Japan Foundation Center for Global
Partnership, supports scholars and analysts from both the United States
and Japan to conduct research on key issues of 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.

The fellowship finances a three-month OR six-month residence in
Washington, D.C., and a one-week research trip to Japan during the
fellowship period. Residency may begin as early as May 2012 and extend
until January 2013. Fellows will complete articles or a monograph and
give a public presentation on their topic.
