Carnegie Endowment For International Peace Junior Fellows Program


The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is one of the world's leading think tanks, one that recruits researchers and Fellows who hold views that spread across the spectrum of politics. Its staff strives to concentrate on analysis of foreign affairs for the benefit of all nations rather than to promote a narrow political agenda. Junior Fellows conduct research, co-author journal articles and policy papers, participate in meetings with high-level officials, and contribute to Congressional testimony. Northwestern may nominate only two students. Successful applicants have outstanding grades, rigorous coursework, and community involvement experience.


Seniors and students in their first year after graduation.

One-year paid internship (approx. $3000/month plus benefits) at the prestigious Carnegie Endowment in Washington, D.C.
