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 2022-24 fellowship term this summer through the deadline to apply, November 16, 2021. Selection will be made by early 2022. If you have any questions, please contact CPD Research Associate Sohaela Amiri: email@example.com with "ATTN: CPD Research Fellowship Application" in the subject line.
*Please note that USC students and faculty are ineligible for the CPD Research Fellowship.
