Background: The Carnegie Endowment Junior Fellows Program provides an opportunity for 8-10 students who desire careers in international affairs to have a substantive one-year working experience in Washington, D.C. at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Junior Fellows provide research assistance to Associates working on Carnegie Endowment projects. One Junior Fellow is assigned to communication/outreach activities.
The Scholarships: Positions are paid, full-time positions for one year; $35,000 per year. A full benefits package is also provided.
The Application: Application forms, procedures and information are available through the Chair of the Graduate Fellowships Committee. Due to the nominations process and varying on-campus application procedures, the Carnegie Endowment is unable to send applications directly to students.
Who Should Apply: Applicants must be graduating seniors or students who have graduated during the last academic year. No one who has started graduate studies is eligible for consideration. The Carnegie Endowment accepts applications only through participating universities (Davidson) via designated nominating officials (Chair, GFC). If you graduated during the previous academic year and have not started graduate studies, you may apply through the university from which you graduated.
Campus Procedure: Applicants should speak with Scott Denham, Chair of the Graduate Fellowships Committee, early in the fall of senior year, to get the application materials. (ususally available around Oct.1). Applications are due mid-November. The Graduate Fellowships Committee selects the college's two nominees from among the applicants.
Recommendations: Two, plus the institutional nomination letter.
Application Deadline: Campus deadline is Friday before Thanksgivning at noon.
