Washington, DCThe Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is pleased to announce the establishment of the Wilson China Fellowship, an initiative designed to build bridges between academia and policy while supporting a new generation of American scholarship on China.

“We are deeply grateful to the Carnegie Corporation of New York for supporting such an important initiative,” said Abraham Denmark, Director of the Asia Program at The Wilson Center. “The rise of China will have significant implications for the future of global geopolitics, and this Fellowship will make the Wilson Center an important source for insight and research on this critical subject.”

The Wilson China Fellowship will support American citizens who have received a Ph.D. in the last ten years who seek to conduct new and original pieces of research that improve understanding of the role China is playing in the Indo-Pacific, its relations with its neighbors and the United States, and its impact on peace and security issues.

In 2019, The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars was named the number one regional studies think tank in the world and was rated #1 for institutional collaboration. The results are according to the 2018 University of Pennsylvania Global Go To Think Tank Rankings Survey.

The Wilson China Fellowship is a non-resident fellowship. Those interested can find out more about the program by visiting the website at:
