Official site: http://scoville.org/
Final Deadline: October 1, 2014 for 2015 Spring Deadline
Final Deadline: January 5, 2015 for 2015 Fall Deadline

The program provides college graduates the opportunity to work in Washington, DC, with a public-interest organization focusing on arms control and international security issues. The fellowship is offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall.

It lasts from six to nine months and provides a stipend, health insurance, and travel costs to Washington. The Scoville Fellowship does not award grant or scholarship money to students. Scoville Fellows may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, and organizing in support of the goals of their host organization and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and Congressional hearings.

They have written fact sheets, letters to the editor, opeds, magazine articles, briefing books and reports; organized talks and conferences, and been interviewed as experts by the media. Many former Scoville Fellows are hired either by their host organization or another group dealing with peace and security issues following their fellowships.
