The Pacific Forum CSIS is delighted to announce the launch of the SPF Fellowship, a resident and nonresident fellows program designed to help build a stronger US-Japan partnership. Through the generous support of the Sasakawa Peace Foundation, the Pacific Forum CSIS is offering US and Japanese citizens the opportunity to spend 3-6 months at Pacific Forum working on issues of concern to the US-Japan relationship. By focusing on new and innovative thinking about security issues, this project is intended to strengthen and diversify the base of the US-Japan relationship, and ensure this vital partnership enjoys a successful second half-century.
Two fellows - at the starting point of her or his career (late 20s and 30s) - will be resident at the Pacific Forum to develop a monograph on a component of the bilateral security partnership. In addition to the time at Pacific Forum, where she or he will join other Pacific Forum programs, the recipient will spend up to 6 weeks in either Tokyo or Washington doing research.
In addition to the resident fellow, the SPF Fellowship also includes a nonresident component. This part of the program is open to Japanese and Americans with a PhD degree or MA with several years of experience in the beginning of their career working on the US-Japan alliance. Participants will join select Pacific Forum CSIS conferences as part of our Young Leaders program.
