About this Fellowship

Each year the Endowment offers 8-10 one-year fellowships to uniquely qualified graduating seniors and recent graduates (applicants cannot have begun graduate studies). Positions available vary from year to year, but may be available in areas such as Democracy, American Statecraft, Technology and International Affairs, Russia and Eurasia, Middle East, East Asia, Africa, Energy and Climate, International Security, and Nuclear Policy. Up to three students may be nominated by USC per year.

Must be eligible to work in the US during the entire fellowship year (non-citizens ok with an F-1 visa).

Students must be nominated by UofSC. Applications must be requested from our office, and generally are available in early October. Contact us for this year's information.
