Pakistan Scholar Program: 2013-2014 Information and Application

How to Apply;
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Fellowship Fund for Pakistan are pleased to announce the 2013-14 competition for the Wilson Center's Pakistan Scholar Program. One Pakistan Scholar, who must be from, and based in, Pakistan, will be selected each year. Successful applicants will spend 9 months in residence at the Woodrow Wilson Center, in the heart of Washington, D.C., where they will carry out advanced, policy-oriented research and writing.
This scholar program is made possible by generous financial support provided by the Fellowship Fund for Pakistan, a charitable trust based in Karachi.

This competition is open to men and women who are from, and based in, 

Pakistan. Applications will be accepted from individuals in academia, business, journalism, government, law, and related professions. Candidates must be currently pursuing research on key public policy issues facing Pakistan, research designed to bridge the gap between the academic and the policymaking worlds.
The Wilson Center customarily expects its visiting scholars to possess the terminal degree in their field. For academics, such as university professors, the terminal degree generally means a Ph.D. But other professions have different terminal degrees; for journalists or businesspeople, it could well be a B.A. In exceptional cases, the Wilson Center will waive the terminal degree requirement for highly qualified and unusually talented applicants. But under no circumstances will the Pakistan Scholar competition be open to anyone currently pursuing a graduate degree or working on a doctoral dissertation.
In addition, applicants must have at least eight years of professional or research experience. Preference will be given to applicants who have published scholarly books or substantial articles in academic or policy-related journals or newspapers.
Applicants must be completely fluent in both written and spoken English.
Length of Appointment and Responsibilities
Pakistan Scholars will be in residence at the Woodrow Wilson Center for the U.S. academic year, September 2013 - May 2014. While at the Wilson Center, Pakistan Scholars will be expected to carry out a full schedule of rigorous research and writing based on the topic outlined in the research proposal submitted at the time of application. They will also be expected to participate in workshops, seminars, and conferences organized by the Center's Asia Program, and in other ways to participate in the intellectual life of the Wilson Center and the larger community of South Asia observers in Washington.
The stipend provided to Pakistan Scholars is $5,000 per month. In addition, the Wilson Center will also pay a portion of health insurance premiums for the scholar, and provide assistance for travel from Pakistan. The scholars will be provided with suitable work space, a Windows-based computer, and where feasible, a part-time research assistant.
