The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship provides full-time six to nine month fellowships for recent college and graduate school graduates to work on peace and security issues with one of the twenty-seven participating public-interest organizations in Washington, DC. Scoville Fellows have the opportunity to work with senior-level staff and to conduct research, write articles, blogs, and reports, organize talks and conferences sponsored by their host organization, and do public education on a range of issues including arms control and nonproliferation, conventional arms trade, environmental and energy security, military budget, and peacekeeping. They may also attend coalition meetings, Congressional hearings, and policy briefings, as well as meetings with policy experts arranged by the program. Scoville Fellows are paid at an annual rate of $31,200 ($2,600 per month), and receive health insurance and travel costs to DC to begin the fellowship. The next application deadline is January 14, 2013 for the fall 2013 fellowship. For complete information see www.scoville.org.
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. Candidates are required to have completed a baccalaureate degree by the time the fellowship commences. Students who have completed graduate degrees are also eligible to apply. All U.S. citizens, and non-U.S. citizens living in the United States eligible for employment may apply. Preference will be given to individuals who have not had substantial prior public-interest or government experience in the Washington, DC area.
