Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship

The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship is a competitive national program that provides college graduates the opportunity to work in Washington D.C. with a public-interest organization focusing on international security issues. The fellowship is offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall. It lasts from six to nine months. Scoville Fellows may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, and advocacy in support of the goals of their host organization and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and Congressional hearings. They have written fact sheets, letters to the editor, op-eds, articles, briefing books and reports, organized talks and conferences, and been interviewed as experts by the media. Many former Scoville Fellows work for U.S. and international NGO’s, the Federal Government, and academia, or attend graduate school in political science or international relations, following their fellowships.

The Fellows receive a stipend of $2,300 per month and health insurance, plus travel expenses to Washington DC. Applicants should be college graduates. All U.S. citizens, and foreign nationals residing in the United States, are eligible to apply.
