About the CPD Research Fellowship Program
In August 2009, the Center launched a new fellowship program designed to support and publicize the work of scholars and practitioners of public diplomacy. Selected from a competitive pool of international applicants by a review committee, the CPD Research Fellows will each oversee a substantive research project that will yield at least two outputs, including one publication for the CPD Perspectives on Public Diplomacy series. The second output could consist of a blog series for the CPD Blog, or another type of product which the Fellow develops with CPD. Three non-resident fellows will be named every year, each serving a two-year term. The selected candidates will each receive a $2,000 stipend awarded at the successful completion of the fellowship.
We will begin accepting applications for the 2024-26 fellowship term this summer through the deadline to apply, November 26, 2023. Selection will be made by early 2024. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with "ATTN: CPD Research Fellowship Application" in the subject line.
*Please note that USC students and faculty are ineligible for the CPD Research Fellowship.
