The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is seeking applicants for the International Affairs Fellowship for the 2021–2022 academic year.
Established in 1967, the International Affairs Fellowship (IAF) is the hallmark fellowship program of CFR. It aims to bridge the gap between the study and making of U.S. foreign policy by creating the next generation of scholar-practitioners. The program offers its fellows the unique chance to experience a new field and gain a different perspective at a pivotal moment in their careers. Academics are thus placed in public service and policy-oriented settings, while government officials are placed in scholarly settings. The duration of the fellowship is twelve months, preferably beginning in September, and the program awards a stipend of $105,000.
The IAF Program is only open to mid-career professionals who have a demonstrated commitment to a career in foreign policy. The program welcomes applicants from a broad range of professional, academic, and personal backgrounds. Qualified candidates must be U.S. citizens.
