APARC Predoctoral Fellowship
About the APARC Predoctoral Fellowship
The Shorenstein APARC Predoctoral Fellowship supports Stanford students engaged in the study and research of topics related to contemporary Asia and U.S.-Asia relations, including economic, environmental, social, political, foreign policy, security, and health issue. Up to three fellowships are available to Ph.D. candidates who have completed all fieldwork and are nearing the completion of their dissertation. The Center will give priority to candidates who are prepared to finish their degree by the end of the 2023-24 academic year.
Shorenstein APARC offers a stipend of $37,230 for the 2023-24 academic year, plus Stanford's Terminal Graduate Registration (TGR) fee for three quarters. We expect fellows to remain in residence at the Center throughout the year and to participate in Center activities.
