Scholarships and Fellowships
Career Services coordinates the nomination process for the Carnegie Junior Fellows program and the award for two scholarships specifically for students completing internships during the summer. Each has its own unique criteria for applications and recipients are selected by a group of faculty and staff. We also work closely with Kaplan Test Prep to offer up to four scholarships for free graduate entrance exam prep classes.
Carnegie Junior Fellows Program
Each year the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace offers 8-10 one-year fellowships to uniquely qualified graduating seniors and individuals who have graduated during the past academic year. They are selected from a pool of nominees from close to 300 colleges.
Junior Fellows provide research assistance to Associates working on the Carnegie Endowment's projects such as non-proliferation, democracy building, trade, US leadership, China-related issues and Russian/Eurasian studies. 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.
