DescriptionThe Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, an international policy think-tank, offers students a substantive one-year experience working and conducting research in Washington, D.C. through the James C. Gaither Junior Fellows program. As part of the application process, candidates select one of the Institute's thematic projects, including topics such as (research areas change each year): non-proliferation, democracy building, energy and climate, international economics, Middle East studies, and Russian and Eurasian affairs. They provide a salary of $42,000 for the year, pre-tax, and paid semi-monthly. A full benefits package is also provided.
Graduating seniors or students who have completed their bachelor's degree within the past academic year and who have not started graduate studies are eligible. Applicants should have completed a significant amount of course work in their field of studies. Some of the research areas also have foreign language requirements. Nominees should be of the highest academic quality and have demonstrated substantial interest in international issues.
International student eligibility:
U.S. citizenship is not required for this program, but you must be eligible to work in the United States for a full twelve months from approximately August 1 through July 31 following graduation. Students on F-1 visas who are eligible to work in the United States for the full year may apply for the program. This would likely require twelve months of OPT. Inquire with International Student Services to learn more about OPT.
