Council on Foreign Relations' Fellowship for Tenured Scholars
The Council on Foreign Relations’ International Affairs Fellowship for Tenured International Relations Scholars, sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, offers tenured academics whose research and teaching are connected to international peace and security issues practical experience in foreign policy through a twelve-month placement at a U.S. federal government agency, in Congress, or with an international organization.
The program helps close the gap between research and practice, enriching both teaching and scholarship of tenured academics by enabling fellows to become practitioners. The program also benefits policymakers by exposing them to critical scholarly research relevant to the foreign policy issues facing the United States and the world. Professors from the humanities, social sciences, law, economics, regional studies, and other academic disciplines with research interests in international relations are encouraged to apply.
The fellowship is for twelve months. The program will match 50 percent of the fellow’s base salary for the academic year (up to a maximum of $80,000).
Eligible applicants must be a U.S. citizen and have tenure at a U.S. college or university whose’ research and teaching are connected to international peace and security. Applicants must hold a PhD and have a prearranged sabbatical with their university. Applications are open now through October 31, 2023.
