Woodrow Wilson Scholarships

Apply now for the 2005 Pakistan Scholars Program, sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson Center. One Pakistan scholar, either from Pakistan or of Pakistani origin, will be selected each year. Successful applicants will spend 9 months in residence at the Woodrow Wilson Center, in the heart of Washington, DC, where they will carry out advanced, policy-oriented research and writing. The application deadline is February 15, 2005.

This competition is open to men and women who are from Pakistan or who are of Pakistani-origin (from any country). Applications will be accepted from individuals in academia, business, journalism, government, law, and related professions. Candidates must be currently pursuing research on key public policy issues facing Pakistan, research designed to bridge the gap between the academic and the policymaking worlds.

Applicants must have the terminal degree in their field (for academics this generally means a Ph.D., but other professions have different terminal degrees), and at least eight years of professional or research experience. Preference will be given to applicants who have published scholarly books or substantial articles in academic or policy-related journals or newspapers.

Applicants must be completely fluent in both written and spoken English. For complete details and an application form, visit http://www.wilsoncenter.org/index.cfm?topic_id=1462&fuseaction=topics.item&news_id=100067
