The Herbert Scoville Jr.Peace Fellowship is a highly competitive national fellowship program that provides recent college and graduate school alumni with the funding and opportunity to work with one of more than two dozen participating institutions in Washington, DC, including leading think tanks and advocacy groups focusing on international security and diplomacy issues.
Scoville Fellows are supervised by senior-level staff members at the host institutions and may work on a range of issues including nuclear and conventional arms control and nonproliferation, conflict prevention and resolution, diplomacy, and environmental and energy security. They contribute to their host organizations’ goals through research, public education, advocacy, and by writing articles, blog posts, fact sheets, letters to the editor, op-eds, and/or reports. In addition, fellows often organize talks and conferences and attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and congressional hearings. Benefits include salary, basic health insurance compensation, mentoring, moving costs to DC, meetings with policy experts, a stipend for professional development purposes, and an entrée into an increasingly influential network of alumni working for domestic and international NGOs, the Federal Government, academia, and media.
