ONIF invites rising juniors, rising seniors, and graduating seniors to learn about fellowships that support careers in public service and international affairs.

The Public Policy & International Affairs (PPIA) Fellowship helps college juniors achieve a Master’s or joint degree, typically in public policy, public administration, international affairs, or a related field. Each year, PPIA seeks out high-potential undergraduate juniors from universities across the country to participate in an intensive seven-week Junior Summer Institute (JSI) before their senior year. During their program, fellows are equipped with the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in graduate school and ultimately, in influential roles serving the public good. Open to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, DACA, and international students.

The Harry S. Truman Scholarship seeks eligible college juniors who plan to pursue careers in government or elsewhere in public service. The Foundation has supported Truman Scholars in many fields of study, including agriculture, biology, engineering, technology, medicine,  environmental management, economics, education, arts education, government, history, international relations, law, political science, public administration, nonprofit management, public health, and public policy. Truman Scholars receive up to $30,000 toward a public service-related graduate degree, participate in leadership development activities, and have special opportunities for internships and employment with the federal government.  Open to U.S. citizens (or U.S. nationals).

The Gaither Junior Fellows Program employs recent graduates to work at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D.C., as junior research fellows. Junior fellows support the work of senior research fellows in areas such as history, nuclear policy, economics, technology and data, global institutions, sustainability, and international policy for Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Russia/Eurasia. Gaither Fellows receive a yearly salary, mentorship, and are encouraged to join cultural excursions with their cohort in the D.C.-area.

This info session will familiarize you with each award, application process, and best practices for constructing competitive applications.
