Carnegie Junior Fellow

Back to Search

Description: Each year the endowment offers approximately 10-12 one-year fellowships to uniquely qualified graduating seniors and individuals who have graduated during the past academic year. They are selected from a pool of nominees from close to 400 participating colleges. Carnegie junior fellows work as research assistants to the endowment's senior associates. Those who have begun graduate studies are not eligible for consideration. See your school’s nominating official to learn more about the college application process.

Eligibility: Applicants must be graduating seniors or students who have graduated during the last academic year. No one who has started graduate studies is eligible for consideration (except in cases where the student has completed a joint bachelor’s/master’s degree program). The Carnegie Endowment accepts applications only through participating universities via designated nominating officials.
