On behalf of the team at the Scoville Fellowship, we are excited to share the news of our fellowship program for recent college and graduate school alumni interested in the dynamic field of international peace and security. This highly selective six to nine month fellowship connects young leaders with our partner institutions in Washington, DC that include leading think tanks and advocacy groups. Scoville Fellows receive a salary and benefits, learn about public policy, and expand their professional network through interactions with analysts, activists, current and former Scoville Fellows, and board members.
Scoville Fellows are supervised by senior-level staff members at the host institutions and may work on a range of issues including nuclear and conventional arms control and nonproliferation, conflict prevention and peacebuilding, diplomacy, environmental security, and emerging technology threats. They contribute to their host organization’s goals in a variety of ways including research, public education, advocacy, writing articles, blog posts, fact sheets, letters to the editor, op-eds, and/or reports. In addition, fellows often help organize talks and conferences and attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and congressional hearings.
Benefits of the Scoville Fellowship include: a competitive salary, basic health insurance compensation, mentoring, moving costs to DC, meetings with policy experts, a stipend for professional development purposes, and an entry into an increasingly influential network of alumni working for domestic and international NGOs, the federal government, academia, and media.
