The Jennings Randolph Program wishes to inform potential applicants to the 2014-2015 Senior Fellowship Program that, due to restructuring and new strategic priorities within the U.S. Institute of Peace, we are suspending the senior fellowship program for 2014-2015 and are not accepting any new applications at this time. Please contact Lili Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have general questions.
The Jennings Randolph (JR) Senior Fellowship Program has provided scholars, policy analysts, policymakers, and other experts with opportunities to spend time in residence at the Institute, reflecting and writing on pressing international peace and security challenges.
Senior Fellowships generally last for nine to ten months, starting in October. Shorter-term fellowships are also available. Fellowships are open to citizens of any country.
