Carnegie Endowment Junior Fellows Program



Each year, through the James C. Gaither Junior Fellows program, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace offers approximately 12-14 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 nominated by several hundred participating universities and colleges. James C. Gaither Junior Fellows work as research assistants to Carnegie’s senior scholars. Please see your school’s nominating official to learn more about the college application process and please see our FAQ for eligibility requirements. Carnegie Junior Fellows spend one year (beginning August 1) at Carnegie in Washington, D.C. as a research assistant and receive a full-time salary with benefits. Eligibility: Applicants must complete a Bachelor’s degree by the start of their fellowship. U.S. Citizens and some international students with U.S. work eligibility are invited to apply. Students on an F-1 Visa will need a full 12 months of OPT to be eligible. Competitive candidates have strong research and writing skills, relevant coursework, relevant work and/or internship experience, and strong letters of recommendation.
