The Fox International Fellowship is a graduate student exchange program between Yale University and other world-renowned partner universities including ANU.
The Fox International Fellowship Program aims to identify and contribute to the education of outstanding students and identify "citizen scholar ambassadors" who, by virtue of their academic and extracurricular record, can be expected in the future to participate in guiding the world toward a more peaceful order.
A `citizen scholar ambassador` is a student whose research furthers the goal of the fellowship to expand and sustain global civic discourse and who possesses both the ability to communicate with a wider audience and the potential to become a leader in or out of academia. Due to this, the Fox International Fellowship is awarded on account of both the research proposal and the personal leadership qualities of the candidate.
The Fox Fellowship is a tremendous opportunity to engage in independent research at Yale University, audit classes, attend workshops, network with academics working in your field and join a vibrant Fox Fellowship alumni/ae group.
Each year one candidate from ANU is sent to reside at Yale and one or more Yale candidates attend the ANU.
The Fellowship period is ten months, beginning in mid August each year and ending on 31 May.
