Woodrow Wilson Center Fellowships in the Social Sciences and Humanities

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars announces the opening 
of its 2007-2008 fellowship competition. The Center awards approximately 
20-25 academic year residential fellowships to scholars and practitioners 
with outstanding project proposals in the social sciences and humanities on 
national and/or international issues. Topics and scholarship should relate 
to key public policy challenges or provide the historical and/or cultural 
framework to illuminate policy issues of contemporary importance. Fellows 
work from offices at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., where they 
interact with policymakers and with Wilson Center staff working on similar 
issues. Fellows are generally in residence for the entire U.S. academic year 
(September through May) although a few fellowships are occasionally awarded 
for shorter periods, with a minimum of four months. The Center tries to 
ensure that the stipend provided under the fellowship, together with the 
Fellow's other sources of funding (e.g., grants or sabbatical allowances) 
approximate a Fellow's regular salary. Woodrow Wilson Fellows are provided 
private offices, access to the Library of Congress, Windows-based personal 
computers, and part-time research assistants for the duration of their 

Requirements: For academic participants, eligibility is limited to the 
postdoctoral level. Academic candidates must demonstrate their scholarly 
development by publications beyond their Ph.D. dissertation. For most 
academic applicants a book or monograph is required. For other applicants, 
an equivalent level of professional achievement is expected. Applications 
from any country are welcome.
