The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars' Cold War International History Project is currently accepting applications for its CWIHP SCHOLARSHIP competition. The application deadline is 15 March 2004.

Funded generously by the Henry Luce Foundation (New York), the CWIHP will award several residential scholarships to junior scholars from China with outstanding project proposals on aspects of Cold War history. Topics should intersect with major new trends and issues in the emerging field of international history of the Cold War and provide the historical context to understand issues of contemporary importance. Proposals relating to China and the Cold War in Asia are of particular interest. Fellows are provided with a stipend (includes a round-trip transportation allowance) and with part-time research assistance. Fellows work from offices at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC.

Eligibility: Eligibility is limited to junior scholars, advanced doctoral students and recent PhDs from China who have not had extensive opportunity to pursue research in US archives and libraries. All applicants should have a very good command of spoken English. The Center seeks a diverse group of scholars.

Applications should contain a (1) cover letter; (2) project proposal (maximum 5 pages), including relevance of US archives and libraries; (3) two references from senior scholars. They should be sent by 15 March 2004, to:
