Apply Now for the Junior Fellows Program

Upperclassmen interested in pursuing a career in international affairs may now apply for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s competitive fellowship, which focuses on providing real-world experience and expert insight into various aspects of the profession.

Around 8-10 fellows are selected to work at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, D.C. The program is a full-time, one-year commitment. Applicants should possess a keen interest in monitoring and advancing global cooperation among nations, especially concerning the U.S.’s role in the international community.

Fellows work directly with leading scholars as research assistants for Carnegie Endowment projects. Areas of emphasis include nuclear policy, democracy building, energy and climate issues, international economics, international security, Middle East studies, Asia related issues, and Russian and Eurasian affairs.

Participants have the opportunity to conduct research for books, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony and organize briefings attended by scholars, activists, journalists and government officials.

The application deadline for the Junior Fellows Program is Dec. 1. For further information, visit or contact Maria Di Stefano at
