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. The WSD-Handa fellows should already have some knowledge of East Asian security and economic developments and should use this fellowship as an opportunity to take a more in-depth look into these issues and offer solutions for improvement.

  • Proficient in English (verbal and written skills).
