Crossroads Asia Fellowships
Crossroads Asia annually funds a select number of visiting fellows, who in large part come from or strongly identify with the regions studied by the competence network. Fellows are hosted by one of Crossroads Asia's network institutions and contribute their local and disciplinary perspectives to the work of the network.
Below you can find more information on future, current and past Fellows.
