Selection Criteria

This is a highly competitive fellowship designed for people who have already demonstrated a strong interest in the field, and not intended for those who want to try a semester in Washington. Successful candidates must be good writers who are adept at working in a fast paced office environment. We are seeking people considering a career working on international peace and security issues with public-interest organizations, the Federal Government, academia, or media.

This fellowship is extremely competitive; candidates who do not submit all required documents on time are unlikely to be selected for an interview.
