In 1987, the Scoville Peace Fellowship program was established to teach promising young scholars perspective on peace and security issues. Fellows choose one of 26 nongovernmental organizations in Washington, D.C., working on a range of issues related to international security. Participating groups include the Arms Control Association, Union of Concerned Scientists, the National Resource Defense Council, Physicians for Social Responsibility and many others.
Fellows join the member NGO that best matches his/her interests. Typical activities include research, writing and advocacy. Fellows often write articles and fact sheets, attend congressional hearings and give interviews to members of the media. The sponsoring organization provides support, supervision and guidance for the fellow’s project.
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree by the start of the fellowship. Those with graduate degrees are also welcome to apply. Prior experience in public interest activism is preferred.
