The Wilson Center Pakistan Fellowship

The competition for the Wilson Center’s Pakistan Fellowship is not currently open. Please check this page for updates on when the next competition will open.

Thank you for your interest in the Wilson Center Pakistan Fellowship, a nine-month residential fellowship focused on public policy issues in Pakistan and U.S.-Pakistan relations. The Wilson Center Pakistan Fellow may come from academia, journalism, the business or policy worlds, or any category of thought leader or public intellectual. The fellow will conduct research and write in her/his areas of interest (which must focus on public policy issues in Pakistan and/or U.S.-Pakistan relations), publish research through the Wilson Center and beyond, and will have the opportunity to interact with policymakers and thought leaders in Washington. The fellow will also contribute substantively to the Wilson Center’s Pakistan programming and research. Upon completion of the fellowship, the fellow will be expected to have finished a substantive research product resulting in a monograph, a series of articles, or a book.

The Wilson Center Pakistan Fellowship, housed within the Asia Program, is a core component of a new Wilson Center Pakistan initiative that builds on and expands the Center’s 40 years of in-depth scholarship and programming on both security and non-security aspects of the U.S.-Pakistan relationship. The new Pakistan initiative will host conferences and other activities on Pakistan meant to help inform the thinking of policymakers, business leaders, journalists, and others focused on or interested in Pakistan and/or U.S.-Pakistan relations.
