The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. Founded in 1910, its work is nonpartisan and dedicated to achieving practical results.

The Carnegie Foundation for International Peace awards eight to ten Junior Fellowships each year to talented undergraduates and students who have recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree. Junior Fellows are selected from approximately 400 participating institutions in the United States. Fellows work as research assistants for senior associates.

While UT does not facilitate a Carnegie Junior Fellowship campus selection process at this time, all students must make an appointment with ONSF in order to access the application.

Basic Eligibility Criteria

  • 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.
