Applications are invited for Foreign Policy Interrupted’s Fellowship program for the 2016-2017 academic year. The program is open to both US citizens and non-US citizens.
The main objective of the FPI is to provide high quality, comprehensive educational and training opportunities that are compatible to changing needs of the students.
FPI fills the void from the ground up through a cohesive fellowship program, including media training and meaningful mentoring at partnering media institutions. FPI is helping women break both internal and external barriers.
Course Level: The program is open to academics, entrepreneurs, journalists, students, and business professionals.
Study Subject: Foreign Policy Interrupted’s Fellowship program is targeted to diversifying voices and opinions in the foreign policy space. The program has two core components:
- An educational module that includes media training, a guide to understanding the media, and brand building
- A non-resident “externship” with a major media outlet. Fellows will work with a given outlet and editor to better understand the inner workings of a news organization and to develop the fellow’s portfolio and voice around her expertise.
Scholarship can be taken in USA
Eligibility: The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for fellowship:
- FPI’s Fellows Program is open to women 25 and older with a clear commitment and passion for foreign policy and international affairs.
- This is not a program for those “breaking into” foreign policy. While we welcome early-career fellows, this program is best-suited to mid-career and late-career foreign policy experts. The program is open to academics, entrepreneurs, journalists, students, and business professionals. The program is open to both US citizens and non-US citizens, fluent in English.
- Upon the start of the fellowship, applicants must be available for six weeks, for an hour each week.
- A commitment to foreign policy is not an interest or hobby, but demonstrated engagement in foreign policy matters and/or a foreign policy matter. Demonstrated engagement is work in the field.
- Applicants for an FPI Fellowship ideally have at least three years of full-time professional experience. For interruptors on an academic track, applicants must have completed their master’s degree.
- While we encourage applicants to have already authored pieces or appeared as commenters on radio or television, such experience is not required. Achievement and a demonstrated interest are, however.
Nationality: The program is open to both US citizens and non-US citizens.
