About the Carnegie Fellowship

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is one of the nation’s leading think tanks and promotes cooperation between nations and active international engagement by the U.S. The Junior Fellows Program offers 10-12 one-year fellowships to graduating seniors and individuals who have graduated during the past academic year who have a dedicated career interest in international affairs. Carnegie Junior Fellows work as full-time research assistants to the Endowment’s senior associates for one year. The work experience is substantive: 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 scholarship, journalists and government officials.
