In August 2009, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) launched a non-resident Research Fellowship program intended to support and publicize the work of scholars and practitioners of public diplomacy. Three non-resident fellows are selected every year, each serving a two-year term.
CPD Research Fellows will be expected to oversee substantive research projects 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. These outputs will be due by June 1, 2020.
CPD welcomes proposals that examine both the historical and contemporary practice of public diplomacy conducted anywhere in the world. Competitive proposals must contribute something new to the growing body of public diplomacy literature. The selected candidates will each receive a $2,000 stipend awarded upon the successful completion of the fellowship. In addition, the Center will offer research assistance as needed from students in the Master of Public Diplomacy (MPD) program or related degree programs at USC.
Applications should be sent electronically to [email protected] with “ATTN: CPD Research Fellowship Application” in the subject line. Please email the application form, a current CV, and a detailed project description per the instructions. Also, please attach details of your proposed CPD research project. Research proposals should have direct relevance to public diplomacy issues. The topics may be contemporary or historical and are not limited to any geographic region. Project descriptions should not exceed 4 pages (double spaced) in length.
Please also include a timeline for any deliverables, highlighting the expected submission dates for a CPD Perspectives on Public Diplomacy paper, CPD Blogs, and other outputs, and indicate whether you expect to receive student research assistance.
