[The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship: Providing Opportunities for Tomorrow's Leaders in Peace and Security]

The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship was established in 1987 to provide college graduates with the opportunity to gain a Washington perspective on key issues of peace and security. Twice yearly, the Fellowship's Board of Directors selects a group of outstanding individuals to spend six to nine months in Washington. Supported by a monthly stipend, the Fellows serve as full-time junior staff members at the participating organization of their choice. The program also arranges meetings for the Fellows with policy experts. Many former Scoville Fellows have gone on to prominent positions in the field of peace and security. To date, 106 fellowships have been awarded.


“My overall experience with the fellowship was fantastic...It is vital to note that without this fellowship, my chances of coming to Washington, DC, obtaining substantive work and finding a means to support myself were extremely slim…The fellowship not only immediately allowed me to begin conducting original research on peacekeeping, but opened the door to an entire community of activists, policy analysts and researchers. I anticipate this is a community with which I will continue to interact for years to come.   When my fellowship ended, I was hired full-time by the Stimson Center. I have the Scoville Fellowship to thank for helping me to get my foot in the door.”

“I'm afraid I'm turning into a Will Rogers regarding Scoville Fellows - never meeting one I didn't like - but I must confess that we have had an extraordinary experience with the individuals that you have sent us during my time with CNS. she most definitely met the very high standards established by her predecessors, and we are grateful to you and the Scoville Fellows Program for giving us the opportunity to work with her.”
