Opportunity Description

Why not apply for the East-West Center RICE Fellowships if you are a journalist, academic, policy expert, researcher, or part of a non-governmental organization or civil society? The East-West Center (EWC) launched the RICE (Research Innovation and Collaboration Exchange) program, which, depending on the project being proposed, includes a monthly stipend and travel expenses.

Candidates that work on projects or conduct research on the following subjects and are based in the US and the Indo-Pacific region are welcome to apply for this opportunity:

  • Environmental issues
  • Domestic or international governance
  • Geopolitics in the Indo-Pacific.
  • Political economy issues related to trade, technology, and integration,

RICE Fellows will finish a project or study in the East-West Center’s offices in Honolulu or Washington, DC. The project, along with any related stipend, travel expenses, and assistance, will determine how long the fellowship lasts. Fellows may occasionally be required to work remotely if they can adequately justify their work in relation to the project.
