Wilson Center Fellowship

The 2022-23 Fellowship Competition is Now Closed!

COVID-19 Update for Prospective Fellows

As the situation around COVID-19 develops, the Woodrow Wilson Center will continue to process fellowship applications. As deadlines approach, we will assess whether extensions are appropriate. Please watch this space and the Wilson Center homepage for updates.

Through an international competition, the Center offers 9-month residential fellowships. The Wilson Center invites scholars, practitioners, journalists and public intellectuals to take part in its flagship international Fellowship Program. Fellows conduct research and write in their areas of interest, while interacting with policymakers in Washington and Wilson Center staff and other scholars in residence.  The Center accepts policy-relevant, non-advocacy fellowship proposals that address key challenges confronting the United States and the world.
