Foreign Policy Interrupted’s Fellows Program

Foreign Policy Interrupted’s Fellows Program is open to women 26 and older with a clear commitment and passion for foreign policy and international affairs.

This is not a program for those “breaking into” foreign policy. While we welcome early-career fellows, this program is best-suited to mid-career and late-career foreign policy experts. The program is open to academics, entrepreneurs, journalists, students, and business professionals. The program is open to both US citizens and non-US citizens, fluent in English.

Upon the start of the fellowship in early 2017, applicants must be available for six weeks, for an hour each week.

A commitment to foreign policy is not an interest or hobby, but demonstrated engagement in foreign policy matters and/or a foreign policy matter. Demonstrated engagement is work in the field.

Applicants for an FPI Fellowship ideally have at least three years of full-time professional experience. For interruptors on an academic track, applicants must have completed their master’s degree.

While we encourage applicants to have already authored pieces or appeared as commenters on radio or television, such experience is not required. Achievement and a demonstrated interest are, however.

Which all goes to say: Lean in. Show us what you got.

Insight Fellowship Program 2017 for Global Change Agents

Each year, the Insight Collaborative Fellowship Program selects a group of exceptional Fellows dedicated to making a positive difference in the world, and provides them with an opportunity to turn their passion and determination into action.

Through intensive training and planning, Insight Collaborative teaches Fellows how to develop and implement innovative programs throughout the world in a series of three-month placements.

Incorporating the knowledge and experience of local partners in the field, Fellows provide training, manage teams, coordinate projects, and help organizations address the needs of those affected by conflict.

Most local partners cannot afford the specialized conflict management expertise and services Fellows provide. Fellows donate their time, energy, and passion. Insight Collaborative donates its network of relationships, methodology, and skills. Donors contribute the funds required to serve individuals and communities in need. By funding Insight Fellowship Program Projects, donors have a direct and meaningful impact on humanitarian efforts around the world.

Insight Collaborative fundamentally changes the way people deal with conflict, develop working relationships, communicate, and problem solve. Impact varies by project and ranges from an increase in resolved disputes, to more effective problem solving, to an improved ability of partner organizations to fulfill their missions.
