Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship
The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship is a highly-competitive national program that provides college and grad school graduates the opportunity to work in Washington, DC, with one of more than two dozen participating public-interest organizations focusing on international security issues. The program has awarded 141 fellowships since its inception in 1987 and is offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall. It lasts from six to nine months and provides a salary, health insurance, and travel costs to Washington. The Scoville Fellowship does not award grant or scholarship money to students.
Scoville Fellows may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, public education, and advocacy in support of the goals of their host organization and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and Congressional hearings. Fellows have written articles, blogs, fact sheets, letters to the editor, op-eds and reports, organized talks an...d conferences, and been interviewed as experts by the media. Former Scoville Fellows work for U.S. and international NGOs, the Departments of Defense, Energy, State, and Treasury, members of Congress, academia, and media, and attend graduate school in political science or international relations, following their fellowships.
Those interested in peace and security issues should visit their website at www.scoville.org. Although the majority of Scoville Fellows have received college degrees in political science, government, international relations, history, or peace studies, we do not require a specific major. There is no application form; application requirements are listed on our website, as are links to the websites of each of the participating groups and information on the work of current and former Scoville Fellows. The next application deadline is January 7, 2013 for the fall 2013 fellowship.
All U.S. citizens, as well as non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. who have an appropriate work permit, are eligible to apply; foreign nationals living outside the United States are not.
CHATEAUBRIAND FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The Chateaubriand Fellowship is a grant offered by the Embassy of France in the United States. Every year, it allows doctorate students enrolled in American universities to conduct research in France for up to 9 months.
The Sciences, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) fellowship program and the Humanities & Social Sciences (HSS) fellowship program have different modes of selection but they are both highly prestigious and merit-based.
Chateaubriand recipients receive a stipend, a round trip ticket to France and health insurance.
