Contact the Office of Fellowships for support at least one month before this deadline.
The James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program at the CEIP is designed to provide a substantive work experience for students who have a serious career interest in the area of international affairs. Approximately 12-14 students will be hired to work as employees at Carnegie in Washington, DC on a full-time basis for a period of 10-12 months. These “junior fellows” are selected from a pool of nominees from close to 400 participating colleges and are matched with senior associates—academics, former government officials, lawyers, and journalists from around the world—to work on a variety of international affairs issues. They conduct research, contribute to op-eds, papers, reports, and books, edit documents, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony and organize briefings attended by scholars, activists, journalists, and government officials.
