James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program
Junior Fellows provide research assistance to Associates working on Carnegie Endowment projects such as non-proliferation, democracy building, international economics, China-related issues, and Russian and Eurasian affairs. 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.
Who Should Apply:
Applicants must be nominated by an official of their university who has been designated for this purpose. Applications are accepted only from graduating college seniors or individuals who have graduated within the past academic year. No one will be considered who has stated graduate studies. Applicants should have completed a significant amount of course work in international affairs, political science, economics, history, or Russian studies. The selection process for the Junior Fellows Program is quite competitive. Accordingly, applicants should be of high academic quality.
There is no standard application form. Typically, applicants are asked to answer several essay questions.
Junior Fellows are hired for a period of approximately one year.
