Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship, a competitive national program, provides college graduates the opportunity to work in Washington, DC, with one of twenty-six participating public-interest organizations focusing on international security issues. The program 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.

Scoville Fellows may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, 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.  Many former Scoville Fellows work for U.S. and international NGOs, the Departments of State and Defense, members of Congress and academia, or attend graduate school in political science or international relations, following their fellowships.

For more information and application instructions,  visit  www.scoville.org.   Our new online application form is accessible via 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.  The next application deadline is October 8 for the spring 2011 fellowship.

All U.S. citizens, and foreign nationals residing in the United States, are eligible to apply; non-U.S. citizens living outside of the United States are not.
