The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is currently accepting applications for the International Affairs Fellowship (IAF). The CFR  fellowship program, geared towards mid-career scholars/professionals, will accept applications through October 1, 2012.  CFR will select approximately 10 fellows, between the ages of twenty-seven and thirty-five, to complete research for a twelve-month period so as to broaden fellows’ foreign policy experience.

Launched in 1967, the International Affairs Fellowship (IAF) is a distinguished program offered by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) to assist mid-career scholars and professionals in advancing their analytic capabilities and broadening their foreign policy experience. The program aims to strengthen career development by helping outstanding individuals acquire and apply foreign policy skills beyond the scope of their professional and scholarly achievements. The distinctive character of the IAF Program lies in the contrasting professional experiences fellows obtain through their twelve-month appointment. Selected fellows from academia and the private sector spend fellowship tenures in public service and policy-oriented settings, while government officials spend their tenures in a scholarly atmosphere free from operational pressure.
