The Institute of Current World Affairs (ICWA) fellowship advances American understanding of international cultures and affairs by sending outstanding young professionals abroad on two-year independent writing fellowships to study countries, regions and globally important issues. Fellows are given the time and resources to explore the world through self-designed programs of travel, thought and writing. They produce monthly dispatches and go on to make vital contributions to their fields.
Fellowships are aimed at developing local knowledge and writing skills, not necessarily awarding research or reporting opportunities to those who already possess them. Strong candidates propose compelling fellowship topics.
- Candidates must be under 36 years of age at the time of the due date for the initial letter of interest.
- US citizenship is not a requirement but candidates must show strong and credible ties to US society.
- Applicants must have excellent written and spoken English-language skills and must have completed the current phase of their formal education. (We do not accept applications from currently enrolled undergraduate students.)
- We expect candidates to have the necessary language skills to allow to them to carry out their proposed projects. That means enough language proficiency for them to be able to function in the local language within a few months of arriving in country.

The Internship Program at the National Museum of American History offers a number of opportunities for students to learn more about the inner workings of history museums–either as an introduction or a deeper dive into an aspect of the museum field. Typically, internships are at least 20 hours per week for at least 10 weeks. Some internships are specified as full-time (40 hours per week), while others are more flexible and can be arranged between the intern and their mentor. Additionally, some internships are longer than the 10 weeks; internships can be awarded for a maximum of 6 months with a possibility of another 6 month extension as long as the intern still has more opportunities to learn and grow.

The British Marshall Scholarships were founded by an Act of British Parliament in 1953 and commemorate the humane ideals of the European Recovery Program (Marshall Plan). These scholarships are awarded to young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom.
The objectives of the program are to express the gratitude of the British people to the American people for the Marshall Plan, to bring intellectually distinguished young Americans who will become America’s leaders, opinion-formers and decision-makers to study in the United Kingdom, to enable them to gain an understanding and appreciation of British life, social and academic value, aiding the establishment of ties between the United Kingdom and the United States.
Each year up to forty British Marshall Scholarships are awarded, which are tenable at any British University and cover one to three years of study in any discipline, at the graduate level leading to the award of a British University degree. Candidates are invited to indicate two preferred universities (although the Marshall Commission reserves the right of final placement).
The total award covers residence and cost of living expenses, tuition fees, a grant for books and some travel money.
Qualified candidates must be citizens of the United States and not have reached their 26th birthday by October 1, the year of application. By the time they take the scholarships, the applicants must hold a first degree at an accredited 4 year college or university and have obtained a GPA of not less than 3.7.
Prospective applicants need to become knowledgeable about British universities, the availability of their chosen field of study, requirement for obtaining a British degree, etc.
