The U.S.-Philippines Alliance Fellowship
The East-West Center (EWC), in partnership with the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines, is accepting applications from Filipino scholars and analysts who wish to conduct an analysis along the following themes: national security, international relations, and international trade and investment in the Indo-Pacific. Applicants must be nationals of the Philippines and eligible to receive a fellowship stipend. Fluency in English is required. Applicants should be pursuing a Master’s degree, PhD, or already have a graduate degree. While applications from candidates of all backgrounds and career levels will be considered, emphasis will be given to:
- Early career applicants who would benefit in their academic or professional careers from such an opportunity,
- Those who have not yet had the opportunity to operate in Washington D.C. and engage with the D.C.-based academic and policy making communities, and
- Projects which would greatly benefit from the resources afforded by a residency in Washington D.C.
To facilitate this research and allow participants to engage with the resources and experts of the U.S. policy community in Washington, D.C., the fellowship will finance residencies for 2 fellows for a period of 2-3 months at the East-West Center in Washington (EWCW).
The fellowship includes a monthly stipend of US$3,000 while in residence in Washington; office space and computer and relevant office resources; and round trip economy airfare to Washington, D.C. from the Philippines. Fellow(s) should begin residency in approximately May 2020 with details to be determined between EWCW and selected Fellow(s). Fellows are responsible for securing their own housing and medical insurance coverage during their term of residency (EWCW will provide suggestions for accommodation
