The Next Generation Leadership in Asian Affairs

The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) is pleased to announce the Next Generation Leadership in Asian Affairs Fellowship for 2009-2010. This year-long program, based in Seattle, focuses on bridging the gap between scholarship and policymaking. Fellows collaborate with leading scholars to conduct independent research and share research findings with the policymaking community in Washington, D.C.

The fellowship is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Individuals who have received their master’s degree diplomas up to twelve months prior to the application deadline may apply to the program. Applicants must have completed a master's or equivalent professional degree (MA, MBA, LLM, JD, etc.) by the time the fellowship begins. Prospective fellows should apply only for the year that they expect to participate. No deferrals are permitted.
The Next Generation Leadership program, which is in its fourth year, is training young Asia specialists from a wide variety of fields to bridge the gap between scholarly research and the needs of U.S. policy toward a rapidly changing Asia. Each fellow receives a fellowship award, as well as a stipend for relocation expenses.

The application deadline is January 16, 2009. Fellowships begin June 1, 2009 and conclude May 28, 2010. For further information and application materials please visit http://www.nbr.org/NextGeneration.
