    The Asia House Fellowship Programme

    A unique opportunity to join the global conversation 

    The Asia House Fellowship Programme aims to develop the next generation of business and policy leaders. The Fellowships offer a unique 12-month opportunity for two postgraduate candidates who share Asia House’s vision for a strong and dynamic relationship between Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

    The Fellows will each conduct a major research project on the issues driving change across Asia and the Middle East. Their research will be published and distributed by Asia House to its wide network of senior business and policy figures and will inform the Asia House programme of engagement with global leaders.

    Research topics

    Applications are invited for original research which will drive forward the debate shaping global trade. The research will ideally fall under one of the following broad categories:

    • Geopolitics and trade
    • Technology and data
    • Energy and sustainability
