Carnegie Endowment Junior Fellows Program 2013-14

Applications are now available for the Carnegie Endowment for Peace Junior Fellows Program. Junior Fellows receive full support for a year of service at the Endowment in Washington, D.C. They provide research assistance to senior associates, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony, and organize briefings attended by scholars, activists, journalists, and government officials.
Applicants must be current seniors or have graduated within the past year; committed to careers in international affairs; must have exceptionally strong academic records with substantial coursework in such areas as international affairs, political science, economics, or history. Must be U.S. citizen or foreign national eligible to work in the U.S. for the award period. Research experience a plus. Some projects require a background in a Critical Need language. 8-10 Junior Fellows will be selected nationwide. The U may endorse up to two candidates.
The application includes a cover form, statement of interest, resume, transcripts, and a reflective essay on a prescribed policy topic. Application packets are available at the University Honors Program office, 20 Nicholson Hall, and from Sally Lieberman (liebe001@umn.edu). Campus application deadline: November 30, 2012.
