Website ScovillePF Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship

The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship provides full-time six to nine-month paid
fellowships for recent college and graduate school alumni to work on international
peace and security issues with one of more than two dozen participating
public-interest organizations in Washington, DC. Scoville Fellows have the
opportunity to work with senior-level staff and to conduct research, write articles
and reports, organize talks and conferences sponsored by their host institution, and
directly support public education and advocacy initiatives. Fellows may explore a
range of issues, including nuclear, biological, and chemical arms control and
nonproliferation; conflict prevention and peacebuilding: conventional arms trade;
environmental security; defense budget; diplomacy; and emerging technology threats.
They may also attend coalition meetings, congressional hearings, and policy
briefings, as well as meetings with policy experts arranged by the program. Many
former Scoville Fellows have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in international
relations and related fields and taken prominent positions in the field of peace and
security with public-interest organizations, the federal government, academia, and
media.

Qualifications:

Applicants are required to have completed a baccalaureate degree by the time the
fellowship commences; those with a graduate degree are also eligible to apply.
Candidates must have an excellent academic record and a strong interest in issues of
peace and security. Graduate study, a college major, course work, or substantial
independent reading that reflects the substantive focus of the fellowship is also a
plus. Prior experience with public-interest activism or advocacy is highly
desirable. It is preferred, but not required, that such activities be focused on
peace and security issues. The program is open to all United States citizens and to
non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. eligible for employment. Non-U.S. citizens
living outside the United States are not eligible to apply. Preference will be given
to individuals who have not had substantial prior public-interest or government
experience in the Washington, DC area.

Salary and Benefits:
Scoville Fellows are paid at an annual rate of $40,800 ($3,400 per month), and
receive basic health insurance compensation, mentoring, a small stipend for
professional development purposes, and travel costs to DC to begin the fellowship.

Application Deadlines:
Spring 2021 Fellowship: October 9, 2020 (begin between January 15 and April 1, 2021)
Fall 2021 Fellowship: January 4, 2021 (begin between July 15 and October 1, 2021)
