FSI Stanford Fellowships

The Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center in the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies announces its 2010-2011 Shorenstein APARC/Takahashi Predoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship supports predoctoral students working within a broad range of topics related to the political economy of contemporary East Asia. Fellows whose main focus is Japan are called Takahashi Fellows, in honor of the Takahashi family, whose generous gift has made this fellowship possible. Fellows studying other regions are called Shorenstein APARC Fellows.

Fellowships are available to Stanford University Ph.D. candidates who have completed all fieldwork and made substantial progress toward the completion of writing their dissertation. A minimum of three quarters of residence and participation in center activities is required. Shorenstein APARC invites applications from a broad range of disciplines, including economics, history, law, political science, and sociology.
Shorenstein APARC offers a stipend of $25,050 over nine academic months, plus Stanford's Terminal Graduate Registration (TGR) fee for three quarters. Each fellow also receives cubicle space at Shorenstein APARC.

Applicants should send the following materials to the fellowship coordinator:
  • CV
  • Description of dissertation. Please attach a detailed dissertation prospectus. The description should be clear and concise, especially to readers outside your discipline, and should not exceed five double-spaced or three single-spaced typewritten pages. Do not include the full dissertation.

  • Two letters of recommendation from faculty or advisors, sent directly to Shorenstein APARC.
