Call for Applications: 2024 Fuller Fellowship Peacebuilding

San Francisco, March 13, 2024 — Applications open on March 18 for the 2024 William P. Fuller Fellowship in Peacebuilding. Fuller Fellows are early or mid-career professionals with demonstrated potential for leadership in the peacebuilding field and who are actively working to promote peace through research, advocacy, policymaking, community practice, or other realms.

The Asia Foundation will welcome a cohort of three fellows from Asia and the Pacific region. The fellowship emphasizes network-building between fellows and the global peacebuilding community to support and elevate their development and work.

The heart of the program will be a study tour and peacebuilding exchange in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, and Washington D.C. from October 13-26. Fellows will also participate in supplementary virtual seminars with The Asia Foundation’s Conflict & Fragility and Leadership & Exchange programs. The Foundation will provide a flexible USD $5,000 grant for each fellow to support their individually tailored projects or advance their professional goals.

The evolving complexity of the subnational conflict in the 21st century requires significant investment in an emerging generation of committed leaders to innovate and drive solutions for peace. The William P. Fuller Fellowship in Peacebuilding is dedicated to the professional development of the next generation of leaders committed to addressing conflict and peacebuilding in Asia-Pacific. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees first established the program in 2004 to honor William Fuller’s 15-year tenure as president of the Foundation. This tribute reflects the organization’s long-standing commitment to the field and Fuller’s particular concern for furthering the professional development of young Asians with the leadership potential and professional commitment to advance knowledge and practice regarding the management of subnational conflicts.

Applications for the William P. Fuller Fellowship in Peacebuilding close on May 12, 2024.
