Posted 12/9: The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship is looking for recent college/graduate school alumni to apply for a six to nine month fellowship in Washington DC focusing on arms control, peace, and international security issues. 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, 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. Benefits include a $3,000 monthly salary, health insurance, board and alumni mentoring, travel to Washington, DC to begin the fellowship, and a small stipend to attend meetings or take a course.
The Application Deadline for the Fall 2017 Deadline is January 6, 2017 while the Spring 2018 deadline is October 2, 2017.
