The Visiting Scholars Program is designed to stimulate and support research conducted by younger public policy analysts, humanists, and social scientists who show promise of becoming leaders in their field, especially those who work on multidisciplinary topics.

Deadline: September

These fellowships support long-term, unusually ambitious projects in the humanities and related social sciences. Burkhardt Fellowships are intended to support an academic year (normally nine months) of residence at any one of the national residential research centers participating in the program. Such an environment, beyond providing free time, encourages exchanges across disciplinary lines that can be especially helpful to deepening and expanding the significance of projects in the humanities and related social sciences. Candidates must also commit themselves to relocate as needed in order to be in residence for the tenure of the fellowship. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant.

The council seeks to bridge the gap between analysis and action in foreign policy by inviting individuals from the academic, business, government, media, and religious communities to engage in a variety of policy studies and actively participate in policymaking. The distinctive character of the program lies in the contrasting experiences it provides at the juncture of policy research and policy formulation. Academic and other professionals from the private sector spend fellowship tenures in public service or in a policy-making setting, while government officials have the opportunity to study foreign policy issues in a scholarly atmosphere free from operational pressure.

The primary focus of the program is contemporary political, economic, or social change in the Asia-Pacific region (including Northeast, Southeast, and South Asia), or topics in international relations and international political economy.

Deadline: December 31st
