AWARD: The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. Each year, Carnegie holds a rigorous national competition to select 8-10 graduating seniors to serve as research assistants. They are matched with senior associates--academics, former government officials, lawyers, and journalists from around the world--to work on a variety of international affairs issues. Junior fellows 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. Junior Fellows spend one year (beginning August 1st) at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, DC. Positions are full-time and include a salary and benefits package.
Applicants must be nominated by an official of their university;
Applications are accepted only from graduating college seniors or individuals who have graduated within the past academic year;
Applicants should have completed a significant amount of course work in international affairs, political science, economics, history, Russian, Chinese, or Middle East studies or communications;
The selection process for the Junior Fellows Program is very competitive. Accordingly, applicants should be of high academic quality.
