Fellowships & Next Gen

Fellowships: Pacific Forum has five fellowship programs: the James A. Kelly Korean Studies Fellowship, the Korea Foundation Fellowship, the WSD-Handa Fellowship, the Vasey Fellowship, and the Nonproliferation Fellowship.

Young Leaders Program: The Young Leaders Program was established in 2004 to enhance cross-cultural opportunities for young scholars and foreign policy professionals to improve their policy analysis skills at an early juncture in their careers. Participation in the program affords Young Leaders an unparalleled opportunity to build networks, observe the foreign-policy making process, and voice their generation’s viewpoints within elite circles of policy specialists.

Hawaii Asia-Pacific Affairs Leadership Program: The Hawaii Asia-Pacific Affairs Leadership Program, building on the six-year success of its predecessor the Hawaii Emerging Leaders Program, provides undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals with the opportunity to learn about Asia-Pacific international affairs from leading senior and emerging policy experts affiliated with Pacific Forum.

Internships: Pacific Forum offers full and part-time non-paid internships in the fall, spring, and summer for undergraduates, advanced students, and recent graduates who are interested in gaining practical experience at an international think tank.
