Carnegie James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program

Application FAQ

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a unique global network of policy research centers in Russia, China, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States.  Their mission, dating back more than a century, is to advance to the cause of peace through analysis and development of fresh policy ideas and direct engagement and collaboration with decision-makers in government, business, and civil society.  Working together, their centers bring the inestimable benefit of multiple viewpoints to bilateral, regional, and global issues.

The James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program provides an opportunity for approximately 12 students who desire careers in international affairs to have a substantive one-year working experience in Washington, D.C. Junior Fellows work as research assistants to scholars working at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.  Dr. Dinius is the nominating official for the University of Mississippi, and all applications must first be submitted to him.  Only two applicants can be nominated by each participating school.

Applications are accepted only from graduating college seniors or individuals who have graduated within the past academic year. No one will be considered who has started graduate studies.  For more information, see the application FAQ.
