The “Fellows Program on Peace, Governance, and Development in East Asia” was established in 2005 by EAI, as an international exchange program for scholars with expertise in peace, governance, and development in East Asia. Funded by the Japan Foundation, the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange of Taiwan, and YBM/KIS, an education institute of Korea, it invites established and next-generation East Asia specialists of the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and other non-Asian regions to give seminars and lectures based on unpublished articles submitted exclusively for the Fellows Program during their visit of three weeks to two or more institutions of higher education in East Asia. The EAI welcomes seminars and lectures based on interdisciplinary articles on current issues with comparative perspectives to transcend country case studies into genuinely regional East Asian studies. By providing its Fellows with opportunities to interact with East Asia’s leading scholars and major institutions through seminars and lectures, the EAI endeavors to develop a dense transnational epistemic community of East Asia specialists across the Pacific. 


Grant: The Fellows Program provides ranging from $8,000 to $10,000 for each of the EAI Fellows. The grant covers an honorarium for the articles, seminars and lectures, as well as the cost of ground transportation, round-trip economy-class international air transportation, hotel accommodation, meals, and a per diem for a three-week stay in East Asia. The EAI and the Partner Institutions that the Fellows visit, will help in supporting the fellowship travel, including transportation, hotel accommodation, and other research activities.

Facilities: Each of the Partner Institutions chosen for a visit provides an office space with access to telephone, fax, and the Internet. The Fellows may stay at the Partner Institutions for research purposes after their seminars and lectures if there is available space at the Member Institutions. The Fellows will consult any extra stay schedule with their visiting institutions, and the EAI will coordinate between them.

Opportunities for Networking: Each of the Partner Institutions will invite major scholars of its country to expert seminars. The Partner Institutions will also offer assistance in arranging additional seminars or lectures at other institutions, as well as interviews and field research, according to their research interest if the Fellows are interested in reaching out to a wider circle of scholars and institutions.
