The Council on Foreign Relations is accepting applications for its International Affairs Fellowship Program, which offers unique opportunities for mid-career professionals focused on international relations.
Launched in 1967, the twelve-month fellowship is designed to assist mid-career scholars and professionals in advancing their analytic capabilities and broadening their foreign policy experience. The program aims to strengthen career development by helping outstanding individuals acquire and apply foreign policy skills beyond the scope of their professional and scholarly achievements. CFR awards approximately ten fellowships annually to highly accomplished individuals who have a capacity for independent work and who are eager to undertake serious foreign policy analysis.
Fellows selected for the program will receive a stipend of $100,000.
To be eligible, applicants must be a mid-career professional who has a demonstrated commitment to a career in foreign policy. The program welcomes applicants from a broad range of professional, academic, and personal backgrounds. While a PhD is not a requirement, selected fellows generally hold an advanced degree and possess a strong record of work experience as well as a firm grounding in the field of foreign policy.
