The NBR Undergraduate Diversity Fellowship program encourages the applications of students who are members of groups historically underrepresented in the think tank and policymaking communities and are interested in a career in international affairs. The applications period for 2021 has closed.
Qualified applicants for the Undergraduate Diversity Fellowship will:
- Be a freshman or sophomore in college with a legal authorization to work in the United States.
- Be interested in Asia and U.S. foreign policy with demonstrated academic achievement and leadership potential.
A selection committee will review applications and top applicants will be invited to interview virtually in mid-April, after which the fellowship award will be announced. Fellows will complete their orientation training in May and join their designated project teams from June 1 through August 31 (depending on their academic calendars).
To be considered for a fellowship, an applicant must submit the following materials through NBR’s application website:
- A short resume that includes academic and leadership achievements.
- A two-page statement of interest that addresses your interest in Asia and U.S. foreign policy and how this fellowship program will contribute to your studies and future career plans.
- An unofficial university transcript.
- Contact information for three professional or academic references.
