Fellowships provide support for overseas or domestic study, or both. The maximum award for overseas study is $10,000 per semester for up to two semesters. A maximum of $12,000 is available for a program of domestic study only. The maximum level of support for a combined overseas and domestic program is $28,000. A foreign language appropriate to the identified country must be part of each proposal.

Fellowship recipients must provide evidence of admission to and enrollment in a graduate degree program at an accredited U.S. college or university and are required to seek employment with an agency or office of the federal government involved in national security affairs.
