Current and Incoming Visiting Fellows and Scholars

The East West Center in Washington (EWCW) hosts a number of Visiting Fellows each year, particularly through its annual Asia Studies Fellowship or other fellowship arrangements. It also periodically welcomes Visiting Scholars seeking a “home base” in Washington DC for Asia-Pacific related field work or independent research and writing, through partnerships with sponsor-institutions/programs (such as Fulbright Fellows) or self-supported individual arrangements.
