Applications are now open for the 2018 Yale Fox International Fellowship. The Fox International Fellowship is a graduate student exchange program between Yale and 19 world-renowned partner universities. The Fellowship seeks applicants whose work has the potential to offer practical solutions to the problems which stand in the way of the world`s peace and prosperity.
The Fox Fellowship, through scholarship and civic engagement, aims to enhance “mutual understanding” between the United States and the home countries of our partner universities in order to provoke and contribute to productive dialogue around complex challenges and to offer current and enduring solutions. Initiated at the end of the Cold War, the focus on peace and conflict in general and U.S./Soviet interaction has expanded to include a host of twenty-first century challenges in every world region such as prosperity and development, poverty alleviation, environmental degradation, resource stewardship, and human rights.
Fox International Fellows are selected for their potential to become leaders in fields that are policy significant, historically informed, and socially meaningful. The fellowship focuses on such critical fields as: international relations and global affairs, law, environmental policy, public health, social sciences, economics, political science, business and finance, management, and contemporary history.
Each Fox International Fellow receives robust support. In the short term, each Fox Fellow is expected to contribute to the academic and social life of the Fox exchange partner university.
