Apply Now for CPD Research Fellowship Program

The Center is now accepting applications from scholars and practitioners of public diplomacy for the 2015-2017 term.* CPD Research Fellows will be expected to oversee a substantive research project that will yield at least two outputs, including one publication for the CPD Perspectives on Public Diplomacy series. The second output could consist of a blog series for the CPD Blog, or another type of product that the Fellow develops with the Center. The outputs are due by June 1, 2017. 

CPD welcomes proposals that examine both the historical and contemporary practice of public diplomacy conducted anywhere in the world. The selected candidates will each receive a $2,000 stipend awarded upon successful completion of the fellowship, as well as research assistance from students in the Master of Public Diplomacy program or a related degree program at USC. Three non-resident fellows will be selected every year, each serving a two-year term.

Applications are due by close of business on Tuesday, September 1, 2015. The results will be announced in October 2015. For details on how to apply, click here.

*Please note that USC students and faculty are ineligible for the non-resident CPD Research Fellowship.
