The Next Generation Leadership in Asian Affairs Fellowship 2011  –  2012

Study Subject :  Policy-making

Employer :  The National Bureau of Asian Research

Level : Postmasters

The Next Generation Fellowship Program will grant a one-year award to two to four fellows annually. Next Generation fellows will work on NBR research projects and participate in the effective delivery of that research to the policy community.

The four major components of the Next Generation Fellowship are :

  • Publication. A signature element of the program is the completion by the fellow of at least one journal-quality article that could be published by either NBR or an outside scholarly journal.
  • Bridging the gap between research and policy. Because NBR believes that writing alone is not adequate to inform policy, the fellow will also participate in NBR’s active outreach toward the policy community in Washington, D.C., through participation in conferences, briefings, and private meetings.
  • Gaining in-depth knowledge of U.S. foreign policymaking. Fellows will engage the policymaking community through association with current and former U.S. government officials on the program’s advisory board, the program orientation, the Leadership Forum, and briefings to policymakers.
  • Guidance and mentoring. The Next Generation fellows will be incorporated directly into NBR’s substantive policy research projects. Responsible to and guided by the relevant project director, the fellows will be embedded in the workings of an organization that expresses in daily practice the high ideals of the fellowship’s goals.
