Each year the Carnegie Endowment offers up to 10-12 one-year fellowships to uniquely qualified graduating seniors and individuals who have graduated during the past academic year. Carnegie Junior Fellows work as research assistants to the endowment’s senior associates. Junior Fellows have the opportunity to conduct research for books, co-author journal articles and policy papers, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony, and organize briefings attended by scholars, activists, journalists, and government officials.
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. Founded in 1910, its work is nonpartisan and dedicated to achieving practical results. Applications for the Peace Junior Fellowship Program are judged on the quality of the written essay, related academic study or work experience, grades, recommendations, and personal interviews. Carnegie Junior Fellows work full time for one year and are paid a gross salary of $37,000 per year. A full benefits package also is provided.
The endowment offers leading experts on international affairs, and Carnegie Junior Fellows have the opportunity to work with one of the following program areas: Democracy, Energy and Climate, Middle East, Russia and Eurasia, Asia, South Asian Studies, and Nuclear Policy.
