What is the Pickering Fellowship?
The Amherst internal deadline for the Pickering Fellowship is:
The Pickering Program typically awards 45 fellowships for a two-year master’s degree in international affairs or a related subject such as public administration, public policy, international relations, business administration, economics, history, political science, communications, or foreign languages at a graduate school approved by the Pickering Program. Law degrees do not satisfy this requirement.
Fellows who successfully complete the Pickering Program and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments in the State Department Foreign Service in accordance with applicable law and State Department policy.
Special Note: applicants for the Pickering Fellowship are encouraged to apply for the Rangel Fellowship. Both fellowships have the same requirments, but different funding sources.
