International Affairs Fellowships, from the Council on Foreign Relations, are meant to bridge the gap between analysis and action in foreign policy by inviting individuals from the academic, business, government, media, and religious communities to engage in a variety of policy studies and actively participate in policymaking. Ten fellowships are awarded annually, providing fellows the opportunity to carry out research. The program integrates fellows in New York or Washington, DC, into the intellectual life of CFR and awards a stipend of $85,000. The deadline for nominations is September 30, while applications are due in November. For more information and instructions on how to apply see the fellowships page.
