Pickering Graduate Fellowship

The Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Graduate Fellowship Program provides financial support, mentoring and professional development to prepare students academically and professionally for a career in the US Department of State Foreign Service.  Graduate Fellows receive up to $42,000 annually for tuition, room and board, books, mandatory fees and some travel expenses for a two-year master’s degree in fields related to the Foreign Service such as business administration, economics, public policy, international affairs, and other relevant fields. This program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service and those with financial need.

Penn’s Application Process:  While the Pickering Graduate Fellowship does not require Penn’s nomination, CURF will be happy to provide advice, guidance, and application assistance to you.
