Fellowship Opportunity for Master’s Degree in Comparative and International Disability Policy

The Nippon Foundation will provide full fellowships including tuition, books, required assistive technology and other support services, to a small group of individuals with disabilities to pursue graduate studies (Master’s level) in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP) at American University's School of International Service through the Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP) for the ASEAN region. The CIDP Master's program will be offered entirely online with the exception of a two-week residency before the start of each Fall semester. The inaugural 2011 residency was held at Mahidol University and the Asia-Pacific Development Center on Disability from 18-29 July in Bangkok, Thailand.


Please note that from the pool of qualified applicants for The Nippon Foundation fellowship, preference will be given to applicants who are residents of an ASEAN country and have a documented disability.

The aim of the IDPP is to serve as a regional resource to both public and private sectors. The institute will develop a cadre of leaders who will work to foster public policies consistent with the overall vision of the ASEAN Socio-cultural Community: an inclusive, barrier-free and rights-based region where people who are disabled are leaders in the determination of their own destinies.

The IDPP Fellowship Committee will recruit a small number of candidates who are 1) blind or visually impaired, 2) deaf or hard of hearing, and/or 3) mobility impaired, to serve as a human resource cadre to the IDPP and conduct research on disability and public policy in the ASEAN region. Preference for the fellowship will be given to applicants meeting the five criteria below:

  1. A talented and motivated individual from one of the ten ASEAN countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) with demonstrated leadership experience and commitment to working with organizations of/for disabled persons or other marginalized individuals in their own country.
  2. A commitment to achieving positive change for disabled persons through the development of proactive public policies within the ASEAN region.
  3. Information and communication technology skills to communicate through distance education and schooling.
  4. A commitment to cooperate with the IDPP to grow an alumni network after completing the CIDP Master’s degree.
  5. A person with the academic requirements and experiential background to meet the entrance requirements of the CIDP Master’s degree program. More information about the requirements for this program can be found on the Admissions page.

For further information and inquiries about the fellowship program and application process, please contact IDPP.
