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. To accomplish this goal, the program seeks to identify and nurture those students who are interested in harnessing scholarly knowledge to respond to the world’s most pressing challenges.
For these reasons, Yale especially welcome students enrolled in the social sciences and kindred disciplines in the professional schools. Yale University jointly pursues these aims with 19 of the world’s leading universities in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. There are more than 500 alumni in the extensive Fox Fellowship network.
The Fox International Fellowship is a graduate student exchange program between Yale and 19 world-renowned partner universities. Fox International Fellows are selected for their potential to become leaders in fields that are policy significant, historically informed, and socially meaningful. Such work is increasingly conditioned by the interdisciplinary and transnational character of knowledge and practice in the twenty-first century. Fellows’ research projects and academic interests reflect the areas toward which many of the world’s major decision-makers have gravitated, as well as those that have the potential to open new channels of debate.
Each Fox International Fellow receives robust support. In the short term, each Fox Fellow is expected to contribute to the academic and social life of the Fox exchange partner university. In the long term, each Fox Fellow is expected to have a positive impact upon the world and participate in national and international decision-making processes.
