The James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program provides an opportunity for approximately 12 students who desire careers in international affairs to have a substantive one-year working experience in Washington, D.C. Junior Fellows work as research assistants to scholars working at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
Due to the limited number of students accepted, CEIP requires that all applicants be nominated by their university and that universities nominate no more than two (or three if at least one of those three applicants is from a historically underrepresented group). Applicants must be graduating seniors or students who have completed their bachelor's degree within the past academic year. No one will be considered who has started graduate studies (except those who have recently completed a joint masters/bachelors program). FAQ sheet
Students interested in applying for the Gaither Junior Fellows Program should consult with Oberlin's nominating official, Kristina Mani (Politics), email@example.com for details about the nomination process and for the application materials.
The internal deadline for applications (including letters of recommendation) is November 20, 2020 at 5pm ET.
