SAV Visiting Fellowship

The South Asian Voices Visiting Fellowship is a year-long research fellowship. It combines professional development of research, writing, and public speaking skills with extensive exposure to the D.C. policy community. The Stimson Center South Asia Program offers Visiting Fellowships annually to outstanding analysts, scholars, and students dedicated to the study of South Asia.

For the residency portion of the fellowship, SAV Visiting Fellows are hosted at the Stimson Center in Washington, D.C. for a period of two months. Fellows work to develop a policy memo while meeting with senior scholars at universities and think tanks along with leading practitioners working on South Asian security issues in the U.S. government. They also contribute analysis to SAV throughout the one-year period.

Fellows are selected based on criteria such as the quality of their research proposal, research and writing aptitude, and fit with the Stimson Center’s research interests. Frequent, high-quality contributors to SAV will be given special consideration.

Applications for the SAV  Visiting Fellowship 2019 are now closed. Check back in January 2020 for the next call for applications. You may find the 2019 call for applications page here.
