SIPRI North America Central Asia Fellowship program
The inaugural fellows of SIPRI North America and the George Washington Elliott School's Central Asia Fellowship Program are nearing the end of their research and time here in Washington. Both fellows will present their research later this month at the Elliott School of International Affairs.
Further, SIPRI NA is delighted to be welcoming its second class of fellows throughout the month of August. The outgoing and incoming fellows will have the opportunity to meet one another and begin to establish a network of young professionals and activists in Central Asia, a key aspect of the program envisioned by SIPRI NA and the Elliott School.
The Central Asia Fellowship program seeks to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and build lasting intellectual networks between scholarly and policy communities in Central Asia and the United States, and is funded by the Open Society Foundation's Central Eurasia Project.
