Herbert Scoville, Jr. Peace Fellowship

Application Deadline:   October 2, 2017

The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship, established in 1987, is a highly competitive national fellowship program that provides recent college and graduate school alumni with the opportunity to gain a Washington perspective on key issues of peace and security. Twice yearly, the fellowship’s Board of Directors selects a group of outstanding individuals to spend six to nine months in Washington. Supported by a salary, the fellows serve as full-time junior staff members at the participating organization of their choice.

Fellows receive a salary of $3,100 per month and health insurance, plus travel expenses to Washington, DC. The program also provides $1,000 per fellow for professional development to attend relevant conferences or meetings that could cover travel, accommodations, and registration fees, or to take a language or policy course. The program arranges meetings for the fellows with policy experts and social networking events with alumni. Fellows also receive mentoring from a board member and a former fellow.

Eligibility

Applications must be college graduates by the time they will begin the fellowship. Current graduate students are eligible to apply, but must be able to work full-time for at least six months. While most fellows have majored in government, history, international relations, peace studies, political science or related fields, anyone may apply if he/she has a background in peace and security issues. Non-U.S. citizens currently living in the United States are eligible to apply provided they obtain the proper work visa.
