Pickering Graduate Fellowship

The goal of this program is to support outstanding students from diverse backgrounds who enroll in two-year master’s degree programs in public policy, international affairs, and public administration and have an interest in pursuing a foreign-service career at the U.S. Department of State. The fellowship provides $40,000 annually for tuition, room, board, and fees during both years of graduate school. The award also includes reimbursement for books and travel allowance. In addition, fellows receive stipends during their participation in a domestic summer internship between the first and second year and an overseas summer internship following the second year.
