Program Overview

Quad Fellowship selects members from an international pool of distinguished candidates from the four Quad countries of Australia, India, Japan, and the United States and the 10 ASEAN countries of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Prospective Fellows are expected to demonstrate academic excellence, exceptional results in their field, and a desire to use their talents to promote collective good.

We Look For:

Academic Excellence
Candidates should have demonstrated excellence in a STEM field through academic success. Competitive doctoral candidates should have some research experience.

Passion for the Intersection of STEM and Social Impact
Candidates should demonstrate their interest and engagement in the impact that science and technology can have on society and the collective good. Candidates should clearly express their interest in applying their studies to positively impact others. This can be demonstrated by research conducted, relevant coursework taken, internships held, extracurricular opportunities engaged, or professional indicators of commitment.

Curiosity, Compassion, and Integrity
Candidates should demonstrate an expansive and interdisciplinary sense of curiosity, an interest in building and sustaining genuine connections between individuals with differing cultural, socio-economic, and professional backgrounds, and exemplify integrity in both their professional and personal lives. This can be demonstrated through professional or personal experiences within and beyond the intersection of STEM and social impact.
