Applications for the 2020 Yale Fox International Fellowship are now open. 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.
Graduate level students pursuing Doctoral or Masters level degrees are eligible. Due to the US visa restrictions, students have to be enrolled in a degree granting program at the partner institution for the duration of the fellowship.
The Fox Fellowship is NOT open to postdoctoral applicants and international student proposing projects in their home country are NOT eligible.
All Fellows at Yale receive the same award, which is commensurate to the level of funding received by doctoral students in the graduate school.
Awards include round-trip travel, accommodations in rental housing provided by the Fox Fellowship and a generous living stipend to cover expenses not already provided for by existing funds that you may have at your disposal. The Fellowship will also cover health insurance. All fellows are also able to apply for grants from a research travel fund up to U.S.D $2000.
