The University of Southern California (USC) is inviting scholars and practitioners of public diplomacy from all over the world to apply for the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) Research Fellowship for AY 2019-2021. The CPD Research Fellows will each oversee a substantive research project that will yield at least 2 outputs, including 1 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 which the Fellow develops with CPD. These outputs must be completed by 1 June 2020.

Applicants have to submit proposals that examine the  practice of public diplomacy, anywhere in the world. The topics may be contemporary or historical and are not limited to any geographic region.


Three non-resident fellows will be selected every year, each serving a 2-year term. Fellows will each receive a US$2,000 stipend 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.


Applicants have to be scholars or practitioners of public diplomacy, and their proposals must contribute something new to the growing body of public diplomacy literature.

USC students and faculty are ineligible for the CPD Research Fellowship.


Applications are to be sent via email by 31 August 2019.
