NID: The Jennings Randolph (JR) Senior Fellowship provides scholars, policy analysts, policy makers, journalists, and other experts with opportunities to spend time in residence at the United States Institute of Peace, reflecting and writing on pressing international peace and security challenges.
Senior Fellowships usually last for ten months, starting in October, but shorter-term fellowships are also available. Fellowships are open to citizens of any country.
The Institute awards between 10 and 12 fellowships per year. Priority is given to proposals deemed likely to make timely and significant contributions to the understanding and resolution of ongoing and emerging conflicts and other challenges to international peace and security.
Applications are invited from all disciplines and professions. Applicants should propose projects with clear policy relevance. Historical topics are appropriate if they promise to shed light on contemporary issues. Area studies projects and single-case studies will be competitive if they focus on conflict and its resolution, apply to other regions and cases, or both.
Senior Fellow awards may not be granted for projects that constitute policymaking for a government agency or private organization, focus to any substantial degree on conflicts within U.S. domestic society, or adopt a partisan, advocacy, or activist stance.
