WebsiteScovillePF      Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship

The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship provides full-time six to nine month fellowships for recent college and graduate school alumni to work on international peace and security issues with one of more than two dozen participating public-interest organizations in Washington, DC. Scoville Fellows have the opportunity to work with senior-level staff and to conduct research, write articles and reports, organize talks and conferences sponsored by their host organization, and do public education and advocacy on a range of issues including arms control and nonproliferation, conflict prevention and resolution, conventional arms trade, environmental and energy security, defense budget, and peacekeeping. They may also attend coalition meetings, Congressional hearings, and policy briefings, as well as meetings with policy experts arranged by the program. Many former Scoville Fellows have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in international relations and related fields and taken prominent positions in the field of peace and security with public-interest organizations, the Federal Government, academia, and media.

Qualifications

Candidates are required to have completed a baccalaureate degree by the time the fellowship commences; those with a graduate degree are also eligible to apply. They must have an excellent academic record and a strong interest in issues of peace and security. Graduate study, a college major, course work, or substantial independent reading that reflects the substantive focus of the fellowship is also a plus. Prior experience with public-interest activism or advocacy is highly desirable. It is preferred, but not required, that such activities be focused on peace and security issues. The program is open to all U.S. citizens and to non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. eligible for employment. Non-U.S. citizens living outside the United States are not eligible to apply. Preference will be given to individuals who have not had substantial prior public-interest or government experience in the Washington, DC area.
