They are matched with senior associates - academics, former government officials, lawyers and journalists from around the world - to work on a variety of international affairs issues.
Junior Fellows have the opportunity to conduct research for books, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony and organize briefings attended by scholars, activists, journalists and government officials
Junior Fellows spend one year (beginning August 1st) at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, DC. Positions are full-time and inlcude a salary and benefits package. Junior Fellows are currently paid a gross salary of $2,916.66 per month.
