The Fox International Fellowship (FIF) is a graduate student exchange program between Yale University and 19 world-renowned partner universities.  The Fellows are selected for their potential to become leaders in fields that are policy significant, historically informed, and socially meaningful.

The goal of the Fox International Fellowship is to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States of America and other countries by promoting international scholarly exchanges and collaboration among the next generation of leaders. To accomplish this goal, the program seeks to identify and nurture those students who are interested in harnessing scholarly knowledge to respond to the world’s most pressing challenges.
