Carnegie Endowment Junior Fellows Program
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit educational organization in Washington dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. Founded in 1910, its work is nonpartisan and dedicated to achieving practical results.Through research, publishing, convening, and on occasion, creating new institutions and international networks, the Endowment associates shape fresh policy approaches. Their interests span geographic regions and the relations among governments, business, international organizations and civil society, focusing on the economic, political, and technological forces driving global change. Carnegie Junior Fellows work as research assistants to the Endowment’s senior associates.
Brown is invited to nominate two candidates to the national competition. Seniors and those who have graduated within the past academic year are eligible; people who have begun graduate studies are not eligible. Applicants should have completed significant coursework and have experience in international affairs, political science, economics, history, Russian, or Chinese studies. There are no citizenship requirements; however, all applicants must be eligible to work in the United States. Finalists are invited for personal interviews by representatives of the Carnegie Endowment in March.
Junior fellows are currently paid a gross salary of $3,000 per month for approximately one year. A generous benefits package is also provided.
Applicants must submit a complete application by the campus deadline. We require one copy of the following:
- An application form
- A one to two page resume including applicant’s telephone number, address, e-mail address, extracurricular activities, and work experience
- A one page essay on why the applicant would like to become a Carnegie Junior Fellow
