Description

Each year the Endowment offers 12-14 one-year fellowships to uniquely qualified graduating seniors and individuals who have graduated during the past academic year. The selected students must have a strong research background and will serve as research associates. Fellows are matched with senior fellows—academics, former government officials, lawyers, and journalists from around the world—to work on a variety of international affairs issues. Junior Fellows have the opportunity to conduct research for Carnegie publications, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony, and organize briefings attended by scholars, journalists, and government officials. They are selected from a pool of nominees from close to 400 participating colleges.

Eligibility

Open only to graduating seniors or early alumni—you may not have begun graduate school. Eligible to work in the US from August 1–July 31 the year following graduation. Duke is allowed two nominations annually.
