The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship provides full-time six to nine month fellowships for recent college and graduate school alumni to work on international peace and security issues with one of more than two dozen participating public-interest organizations in Washington, DC. Scoville Fellows have the opportunity to work with senior-level staff and to conduct research, write articles and reports, organize talks and conferences sponsored by their host organization, and do public education and advocacy on a range of issues including arms control and nonproliferation, conflict prevention and resolution, conventional arms trade, environmental and energy security, military budget, and peacekeeping. They may also attend coalition meetings, Congressional hearings, and policy briefings, as well as meetings with policy experts arranged by the program. Scoville Fellows are paid at an annual rate of $34,800 ($2,900 per month), and receive health insurance and travel costs to DC to begin the fellowship. The next application deadline is October 1, 2015 for the spring 2016 fellowship, which will begin between January 15 and April 1, 2016.
