The Next Generation Fellowship is a post-master’s degree program that is cultivating a new generation of Asian affairs specialists committed to and capable of bridging the gap between the best scholarly research and the pressing needs of U.S. foreign policy toward a rapidly changing Asia.
Recent master’s and professional degree holders (e.g., MA, MBA, LLM, JD, etc.) are invited to apply for a year-long fellowship at NBR’s headquarters in Seattle. Fellows will collaborate with leading scholars to conduct independent research and participate in the briefing of research findings to the policymaking community in Washington, D.C.
This one-year fellowship is designed to further the professional development of Asia specialists in the year just after the completion of their master’s degree. Successful fellows will gain further knowledge of Asia and an understanding of the U.S. foreign policymaking process by: conducting independent research under the guidance of the NBR Editor; collaborating with senior scholars on academic publications; and traveling to Washington, D.C., to participate in the briefing of research findings to relevant constituents within the policy community.
Fellows will acquire or refine skills in:
- analysis, research, and writing
- written presentation of research in a format that is useful to policymakers
- briefing skills
- team collaboration
- project management
- understanding U.S. foreign policy processes
