Foundation / Corporation
Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
Fellowships to USA scholars and professionals for research that brings an innovative approach to US foreign policy challenges. Participants will experience work in a new field in order to gain fresh perspectives. Government officials are thus placed in academic settings, while academics are placed in public service and policy-oriented settings.
The International Affairs Fellowship (IAF) program aims to bridge the gap between the study and making of U.S. foreign policy by creating the next generation of scholar-practitioners.
For those seeking to spend the fellowship year in the U.S. government, CFR will work with the fellow to identify a U.S. government agency willing to serve as a host. The placement is made at the discretion of the host agency and is contingent on the fellow's successfully obtaining a security clearance, which is granted solely by the U.S. government.
For those seeking to spend the fellowship year at an international organization or an academic institution, CFR will work with the fellow to identify an organization willing to serve as a host. The placement is made at the discretion of the host organization. A security clearance may not be required.
Selection is based on a combination of the following criteria: Scholarly qualifications, achievements and promise, professional experience, firm grounding in foreign policy and international relations, and an application proposal that focuses on solutions to identified problems in U.S. foreign policy.
The application proposal will be judged on its originality, practicality, potential, likelihood of completion during the fellowship period, and the contribution it will make to the applicant’s individual career development.
