In some cases, a recipient may be permitted to work at another location, provided sufficient project-relevant justification is presented. 

During the Fellowship terms, participants will pursue their project interests while taking advantage of the resources and access of the East-West Center’s Honolulu and Washington, D.C., offices. Moreover, participants will have opportunities to collaborate with EWC researchers to enhance and advance their projects.
