Pacific Forum has six fellowship programs. Applicants who apply for resident fellowships will automatically be considered for nonresident positions. All resident fellowships offer stipends while nonresident fellows do not receive stipends.
- James A. Kelly Korean Studies Fellowship builds on Pacific Forum’s existing Korea related programs.
- Korea Foundation Fellowship is an opportunity exclusively for Korean nationals who are currently enrolled in or recent graduates of a graduate degree progam.
- Sasakawa Peace Foundation Fellowship allows American and Japanese fellows to focus on US-Japan alliance issues.
- WSD-Handa Fellowship engages Asian, European, and American fellows in security and economic development issues.
- Adm. Lloyd Vasey Fellowship is offered to non-US citizens interested US-Asia security policy.
- Nonproliferation and Nuclear Security Fellowship is an opportunity to work on Pacific Forum's nonproliferation and nuclear security programs.
Pacific Forum senior staff will provide guidance and consultation for fellows as they conduct their research. The final product will be of quality to be submitted to a refereed journal or be published in the Pacific Forum Issues & Insights series. In addition to their research, fellows will support other Pacific Forum research programs and activities including:
Attending HIF (Honolulu International Forum) meetings
This is an exclusive breakfast meeting held once every 1~3 months that features senior security experts and includes a number of Pacific Forum’s biggest local supporters.
Taking initiative during Young Leader programs
Fellows will receive priority over 600 Young Leader candidates worldwide to attend relevant conferences. This privilege comes with high expectations to display leadership during and after the YL conferences.
