The Henry A. Kissinger Visiting Scholars Program awards one postdoctoral fellowship, funded by the Johnson Center for the Study of American Diplomacy for one year and renewable for one additional year. Postdoctoral Kissinger Visiting Scholars must have completed their Ph.D. degree to begin the fellowship.
Kissinger Visiting Scholars are expected to use the time to conduct original research and write manuscripts for publication, focused on the role of the United States in global affairs from World War II to the present, including the conduct of U.S. statecraft, diplomacy, and grand strategy. Kissinger Visiting Scholars fellowships will be awarded to candidates with outstanding proposals that require access to the Henry A. Kissinger Papers or other archival holdings related to American diplomacy at Yale.

Kissinger Visiting Scholars will also work with an active academic community of post-doctoral fellows and pre-doctoral fellows, as well as Yale faculty in history, political science, and other disciplines.
