The Pacific Forum: WSD-Handa Fellowship Program for Leaders of Tomorrow!

Deadline: 31 July 2017

The Pacific Forum presents “WSD-Handa Fellowship” to help young East Asian, US, and European scholars and professionals obtain the knowledge and skills that will define them as they grow into the leaders of tomorrow.

Through the generosity of the Worldwide Support for Development and Dr. Handa Haruhisha, the Pacific Forum CSIS has established the WSD-Handa Fellowship Program.

This fellowship offers both resident and non-resident fellowships to increase East Asian, US and European participation in Pacific Forum programs.
