The goal of the Fox International Fellowship is to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other countries by promoting international scholarly exchanges and collaborations among the next generation of leaders.

The Fox International Fellowship is a graduate student exchange program between Yale and 20 world-renowned partner universities.

What do Fox International Fellows do?

Fox International Fellows undertake independent research in one of the focus fields for an academic year at one of the Fox exchange partner universities. Fox International Fellows participate fully in the planned events and activities of the Fox Fellowship and become active member of the Fox alumni network. They are expected to report on their progress and activities throughout the year; and are often asked to present their research.

Like Yale University, all of the Fox exchange partner universities have excellent resources for research scholars and Fellows are encouraged to make optimal use of the faculty, libraries, and archives that they offer. 


Fellows in residence at Yale attend orientation, a bi-weekly seminar, and functions throughout the year with the Fox family and the broader Yale, New Haven, and Connecticut communities.
