The Woodrow Wilson Foreign Policy Fellowship Program is open to applications now.
Who Should Apply
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars invites mid to senior-level Congressional staff (Legislative Assistant, Legislative Director or Chief of Staff) to participate in the Woodrow Wilson Foreign Policy Fellowship Program. Each year, the Wilson Center will host seminar series with 30 participants each to take part in bipartisan dialogue on foreign policy issues addressing key public policy challenges for legislators today. The Fellowship Program is also open to exceptional rising leaders who staff other U.S. policymakers who are keenly interested in foreign policy issues.
Applicants to the Fellowship Program should possess an understanding of legislative process and aspire to a meaningful career in shaping foreign policy.
Applicants for the Woodrow Wilson Foreign Policy Fellowship Program must submit for consideration no later than March 18, a copy of the application form, a copy of the resume, a personal statement, and a recommendation letter.
If accepted, each fellow is required to attend at least five (5) sessions of the seminar series on Fridays, 2:30pm-5:30pm. The dates for the spring seminar series are April 12, 19, 26, May 10, 17, and June 7. Please do not apply unless you know you can attend all program dates.
After successfully completing the seminar series, each participant will be invited to continue to shape the public debate on foreign policy issues as Woodrow Wilson Foreign Policy Fellows.

“We live in an age disturbed, confused, bewildered, afraid of its own forces, in search not merely of its road but even its direction. There are many voices of counsel, but few voices of vision, there is much excitement and feverish activity, but little concert of thoughtful purpose.”
