"The Next Generation: Leadership in Asian Affairs" Program The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR)

Please join us in nurturing a new generation of Asia scholars by encouraging recent master's degree recipients to apply for NBR's Next Generation Leadership program, a new year-long fellowship that focuses on bridging the gap between scholarship and policymaking. The fellowship will be based at NBR's headquarters in Seattle. Fellows will collaborate with leading scholars to publish research and share their findings with the policymaking community in Washington, D.C.

The Next Generation Leadership program will break new ground by mentoring and immersing young Asia specialists from a wide variety of fields and interests in the skills and the practice of bridging the gap between scholarship and policy. Each fellow will receive a fellowship award, as well as travel and research-related expenses.

Application deadline is January 16, 2006. Fellowships begin June 5, 2006. For further information and application materials please visit http://www.nbr.org/NextGeneration
