The Fox International Fellowship program is a student exchange program between Yale University and twenty-one world-famous academic associates. The objective of the Fox International Fellowship program is to improve mutual awareness between the peoples of the United States and other nations by promoting foreign scholarly exchanges and partnerships among the next generation of leaders.
The Fox International Fellowship program was created in 1988 by Mr. Joseph Carrère Fox (Yale Class of 1938) as a way to offer a peaceful scholarly exchange between Yale University and Moscow State University at the heart of the tense international environment of the Cold War.
Yale’s Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies is the university’s central focus for the development of education and research related to all dimensions of the world’s global businesses, communities, and world cultures.
The MacMillan Center is committed to helping students develop an appreciation of the world beyond the United States and the role of the nation in the world as an important and required aspect of autonomous education and professional skills formation at the university stage.
The MacMillan Centre additionally supports four Master’s Degree Certificates of Advanced Standing: African Studies, European Studies, Latin American and Iberian Studies, and Modern Middle East Studies. Language skills improvement is a crucial part of each of the diploma and certificate programs.
The goal of the Fox International Fellowship program is the enhancement of international scientific knowledge and exchange by inspiring global scientific interaction and cooperation for the gain of the future leaders of the United States and other nations.
