Founded in 1910, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit and nonpartisan organization advancing international cooperation and promoting America’s international involvement. The Carnegie Junior Fellows program is a highly competitive program that draws applicants from more than 300 colleges across the country for a chance to work hand-in-hand with the endowment’s senior researchers.
Junior Fellows take on topics like nonproliferation, democracy-building, trade, U.S. leadership, China-related issues and Russian/Eurasian studies. They contribute to books, journal articles, policy papers and congressional testimony. Fellows also get to sit in on meetings with high-level officials and organize briefings for scholars, activists, journalists and government officials.
