Target Group: Graduate Students
Closing Date: December 15, 2020
Description: ICWA advances deep knowledge of foreign countries and cultures by supporting fellows for two-year immersive programs of self-designed, independent research and writing abroad. This is a writing fellowship. Fellows are required to produce monthly dispatches made available on the ICWA website and email to institute supporters and other interested parties, including family, friends and professional associates of the fellows. Fellows work closely with the executive director, who serves as writing coach, editor and mentor. A proposed fellowship must hold the promise of enriching public life in the United States by advancing the understanding of foreign countries, cultures and trends. Public service, social activism or contribution to wider knowledge in the United States is our ultimate purpose, from a belief the public benefits from the wisdom and experience fellows acquire.
