Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship
The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship invites recent college and graduate school graduates to apply for six to nine month fellowships in Washington, DC, focusing on arms control, peace, and international security issues. Founded in 1987 to recruit and train the next generation of leaders on a range of peace and security issues, the program has awarded 141 fellowships.
Scoville Fellows work with one of more than two dozen participating public-interest organizations. They may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, public education, and advocacy on a range of security issues, including nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, non-proliferation, missile defense, weapons trade, environmental and energy security, regional security, and peacekeeping, that support the goals of their host organization, and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings and Congressional hearings. Fellows are supervised by senior level staff and often have the opportunity to publish articles, blogs, or reports. The program also arranges meetings for the fellows with policy experts. Many former Scoville Fellows have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in international relations and taken prominent positions in the field of peace and security with public interest organizations, the Federal Government, academia, and media.
Candidates must have an excellent academic record and a strong interest in issues of peace and security. The program is open to all U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. eligible for employment. Fellows are paid at the rate of $31,200 per year ($2,600 per month) and receive health insurance and travel to Washington, DC. The next application deadline is January 7, 2013 for the fall 2013 fellowship. For complete details, visit www.scoville.org or call (202) 446-1565.
