Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

WWICS

Washington, D.C., United States

WWICS was established by Congress as a living memorial to former President Woodrow Wilson. As an institution devoted to the promotion of scholarship in public affairs, WWICS brings together the thinkers and the doers, the scholars and the policymakers, in the hope that from their dialogue better understanding and better policies will emerge. Bridging the gap between the world of ideas and the world of policy, WWICS brings participants from these two worlds into creative contact, enabling them to learn from and enrich one another. The center hosts more than 350 meetings annually, providing a unique public venue for the exchange of ideas, and supports research in the social sciences and humanities, with an emphasis on history, political science, and international relations. WWICS offers residential fellowships that enable academics, public officials, journalists, business professionals, and others to pursue their research. The center's professional staff oversee specialized programs, including conferences, seminars, and other activities that promote dialogue and the advancement of knowledge.
