The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization that focuses on international public policy and the forces that drive global change. Each year the endowment offers approximately 10-12 one-year fellowships to uniquely qualified graduating seniors and individuals who have graduated during the past academic year. They are selected from a pool of nominees from close to 400 participating colleges. Carnegie junior fellows work as research assistants to the endowment's senior associates.
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 (except in cases where the student has completed a joint bachelor’s/master’s degree program). The Carnegie Endowment accepts applications only through participating universities via designated nominating officials.
You need not be a U.S. citizen if you attend a university located in the United States. However, all applicants must be eligible to work in the United States for a full twelve months from approximately August 1 through July 31 following graduation. Students on F-1 visas who are eligible to work in the United States for the full year may apply for the program.
If you attend a participating school outside of the United States, you must be a U.S. citizen (due to work permit requirements).
University nomination is required. Students interested in the Carnegie should contact Lauren Tuckley, the Associate Director of the Office of Fellowships. Please visit the website for more information.
