Woodrow Wilson Center Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars was established by Congress to symbolize and strengthen "the fruitful relationship between the world of learning and the world of public affairs." It aims, in a strictly nonpartisan fashion, to foster scholarship and to promote the
exchange of views between scholars and decision makers.

The Center sponsors research, meetings, and publications on history, economics, politics, international relations, the environment, and many other areas.

Fellows from around the world are brought to Washington, DC, to encourage discourse among disciplines and professions.

The Center enriches the quality of knowledge and debate in the nation's capital and throughout the world.
