Gaither (James C.) Junior Fellows Program

Each year, through the James C. Gaither Junior Fellows program, 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 400 participating colleges. Fellows work as research assistants to Carnegie's senior scholars. Those who have begun graduate studies are not eligible for consideration. Fellows receive $35,000 for a one-year internship in Washington, D.C.

Eligibility: Applicants must be graduating seniors or students who have graduated during the last academic year. No one who has started graduate studies is eligible for consideration (except in cases where the student has completed a joint bachelor’s/master’s degree program). The Fellows Program accepts applications only through participating universities via designated nominating officials.

Office Application Deadline: January 5, 2018

This deadline is required for the internal submission process at the Fellowships Office. When the current year's application materials are released (generally by the end of October) they will be available here on our website.
