Fellowship for International Affairs

Each year the Carnegie Endowment offers 8-10 one-year fellowships to highly qualified graduating seniors and individuals who have graduated during the past academic year. Carnegie Junior Fellows provide research assistance to senior researchers working on the Carnegie Endowment's projects such as non-proliferation, democracy building, trade, US leadership, China-related issues and Russian/Eurasian studies.

Junior Fellows have the opportunity to conduct research for books, co-author journal articles and policy papers, 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, 2014) at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, DC. Positions are full-time and include a salary and benefits package (see details further below). Carnegie Junior Fellows are selected through a highly competitive process from a pool of nominees from close to 300 colleges.

Applicants for the Carnegie Junior Fellows Program must be nominated by their University. The University of Maryland, College Park can nominate two (2) students for the national competition. The deadline to apply for UMD nomination is December 12, 2014.
