Funding brief: The Fox International Fellowship is a graduate student exchange program between Yale University and 20 world-renowned academic partners. The goal of the Fox International Fellowship is to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other countries by promoting international scholarly exchanges and collaborations among the next generation of leaders.
The Fox International Fellowship at Yale University will only consider students who are nominated formally by each Fox Partner University. Each Fox partner university sets its own guidelines and schedules for reviewing and selecting individual applications from their students in order to decide which applications to nominate officially. In identifying candidates for Fox Fellowships, each partner university adheres to the following eligibility and selection criteria.
Field of focus: A strong and specific research project with a focus in international relations and global affairs, environmental policy, public health, business and finance, social sciences, economics, political science, law, and contemporary history, with preference for topics of contemporary, applied and/or institutional relevance to enhancing the world’s peace and prosperity. The candidate’s overall program of studies or degree may come from different disciplines and departments as long as their project focuses on one or more of these fields.
Overview of the nomination and selection process: Each Fox partner university holds an open annual competition to gather applications, select and nominate their best students to be Fox Fellows to Yale. The Yale Fox Fellowship selection committee makes the final decision based on the following criteria:
● Quality of research proposal
