The Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship is funded by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. The Pickering Fellowship awards selected recipients with financial support to help cover tuition, room and board, books, fees, etc. during their junior and senior years of college and their first year of graduate school. Pickering Fellows must commit to pursuing an advanced degree in international studies at a participating partner school. Partner schools provide financial support in the second year of graduate study based on need. Additionally, Pickering Fellows participate in two paid summer internships – one in Washington, D.C. at the Department of State and one at a U.S. embassy overseas.
The Pickering Fellowship awards up to $40,000 in financial aid.
