Carnegie Junior Fellows Program
We are not currently accepting applications for this scholarship. We will accept applications again in the fall semester of 2016.
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace offers approximately 10 to 12 one-year fellowships to graduating seniors and people who have graduated within the past academic year. Junior fellows serve as research assistants to senior associates at the endowment.
Each year, the College accepts applications and then selects nominees for the Junior Fellows Program.Learn more about the Junior Fellows Program
