Foreign Affairs Information Technology Fellowship
Administered by Washington Center, this U.S. Department of State fellowship program aims to diversify the ranks of Information Management Specialists serving in the U.S. Foreign Service with traditionally underrepresented minority groups. This includes but is not limited to racial, religious and gender minorities, as well as those with financial need. If accepted you’ll receive the financial support, mentoring and professional development to prepare you for a career in the Foreign Service. Upon successfully completing the program and the Foreign Affairs IT Specialist entry requirements, you will receive an appointment as a Foreign Service Information Management Specialist (IMS).
You must be entering your junior year in the fall of the cohort year; OR be seeking admission to an IT-related master’s degree program beginning in the fall of the cohort year.
The Fellowship includes two summer internships (which come with stipends, housing and travel allowances)—one domestically, the second overseas—and an appointment with the Foreign Service, upon completion, for five years.
