Fellowships of $95,000 to USA scholars and professionals for research that brings an innovative approach to US foreign policy challenges. Funding is intended to help professionals strengthen their research skills, analytic capabilities and foreign policy knowledge and experience.

Selection is based on a combination of the following criteria: scholarly qualifications, achievements and promise, depth and breadth of professional experience, firm grounding in foreign policy and international relations, and an application proposal that focuses on solutions to identified problems in U.S. foreign policy.

Applicants are encouraged to plan a systematic approach to assessing the major substantive and process issues of their planned research. The proposal will be judged on the proposed work’s originality, practicality, potential, likelihood of completion during the fellowship period, and the contribution it will make to the applicant’s individual career development.

$95,000

The duration of the fellowship is twelve months, preferably beginning in September. Though deferment is not an option, requests to do so for up to one year only will be considered on a case-by-case basis and under special circumstances.

The IAF Program is only open to mid-career professionals who have a demonstrated commitment to a career in foreign policy. The program welcomes applicants from a broad range of professional, academic, and personal backgrounds. While a PhD is not a requirement, selected fellows generally hold an advanced degree and possess a strong record of work experience as well as a firm grounding in the field of foreign policy. The program does not fund pre-or postdoctoral research, work toward a degree, or the completion of projects for which substantial progress has been made prior to the fellowship period. Qualified candidates must be U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are eligible to work in the United States. CFR does not sponsor visas.

Interested candidates who meet the program’s eligibility requirements can apply online between July 1 and October 31 on an annual basis. Candidates who are selected as IAF finalists will be notified in January, with finalist interviews scheduled in Washington, DC, and New York City between January and February. Official selections and announcement of IAF awards will be made in March.
