fox fellowship

The Fox International Fellowships at the MacMillan Center provide research fellowships through exchanges with several leading international academic institutions, including Moscow State University. A Fox International Fellow’s research should be a serious, scholarly contribution to their chosen field.

The exchange is made possible by the generosity of Joseph Carrere Fox (‘38) and his wife, Alison Barbour Fox, whose commitment to encouraging better understanding between the US and other countries led them to offer support for exchanges between Yale and leading universities worldwide.
