Gaither Junior Fellows Program

The James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program is a highly-competitive award that enables recent graduates to work for a year with a senior fellow in one of the program areas of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Fellows serve as research assistants for Senior Carnegie Associates (academics, former government officials, lawyers, and journalists) from around the world on a range of international affairs issues. Junior Fellows have the opportunity to conduct research for books, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony, and organize briefings on international policy. Fellows receive an annual salary and a benefits package (medical, dental, vacation).
