Apply Now for 2014-16 CPD Research Fellowship

CPD is now accepting Research Fellowship applications from scholars and practitioners of public diplomacy for the 2014-2016 term.*

Selected from a competitive pool of international applicants by a review committee, CPD Research Fellows will 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 series for the CPD Blog, or another type of product that the Fellow develops with the Center.

As always, CPD welcomes proposals examining both contemporary and historical public diplomacy, conducted anywhere in the world. Competitive proposals must contribute something new to the growing body of public diplomacy literature. The selected candidates will each receive a $2,000 stipend awarded at the successful completion of the fellowship.  In addition, the Center will offer research assistance as needed to CPD Research Fellows from students in the Master of Public Diplomacy (MPD) program or related degree programs at USC. Three non-resident fellows will be selected every year, each serving a two-year term.

Applications are due by close of business on Monday, September 1, 2014. For details on how to apply, click here.
