I am pleased to send you information about the Herbert Scoville
Jr. Peace Fellowship, a competitive national program that provides college
graduates the opportunity to work in Washington, DC, with one of twenty-seven
participating public-interest organizations focusing on international security
issues. The program has awarded 134 fellowships since its inception in 1987 and
is offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall. It lasts from six to nine
months and provides a stipend, health insurance, and travel costs to
Washington. The Scoville Fellowship does not award grant or scholarship money
including research, writing, education, and advocacy in support of the goals of
their host organization and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and
Congressional hearings. Fellows have written articles, blogs, fact sheets,
letters to the editor, op-eds and reports, organized talks and conferences, and
been interviewed as experts by the media. Former Scoville Fellows work for U.S.
and international NGOs, the Departments of State and Defense, members of
Congress and academia, and attend graduate school in political science or
international relations, following their fellowships.
to visit our website at www.scoville.org. The
Scoville Fellowship is a small organization and we lack the resources to send
staff to college career fairs and to post jobs on individual university
websites. Although the majority of Scoville Fellows have received college
degrees in political science, government, international relations, history, or
peace studies, we do not require any specific major. There is no application
form; application requirements are listed on our website, as are links to the
websites of each of the participating groups and information on the work of
current and former Scoville Fellows. A flier about the program can be printed
from http://www.scoville.org/flier.html The next application
deadline is October 3, 2011 for the spring 2012 fellowship.
U.S. who have an appropriate work permit, are eligible to apply; foreign
nationals living outside the United States are not.
