Applicants must be graduating seniors or students who have graduated during the last academic year. No one who has started graduate studies is eligible for consideration (except in cases where
the student has completed a joint bachelor's/master’s degree program). The Carnegie Endowment accepts applications only through participating universities via designated nominating officials. You need not be a
U.S. citizen if you attend a university located in the United States. All applicants must be eligible to work in the United States for a full 12 months from August 1 through July 31 following graduation.
Students on F-1 visas who are eligible to work in the United States for the full year (August 1 through July 31) may apply for the program. If you attend a participating school outside of the United States, you must be a U.S. citizen (due to work permit requirements).
Positions are paid, full-time positions for one year. Junior
fellows are currently paid a gross salary of $3,083.33 per month
($37,000 per year). A full benefits package is also provided.
The Carnegie Endowment’s deadline is January 15 (or the Friday before
if the January 15 falls on a weekend or holiday). However, most
schools set an earlier deadline (some as early as November) to receive
and review applications. Consult your university for application
deadlines and details on the school’s application process.
