Junior Centennial Fellows
The Walsh School of Foreign Service Dean’s Office provides the opportunity for current undergraduate and graduate students in SFS to apply for Junior Fellowship positions for the academic year 2019-20 in support of the work of the Centennial Fellows at Georgetown.
The Centennial Fellows will be in residence at Georgetown for the 2019-2020 academic year. Their areas of focus include:
- Ms. Sheba Crocker (CARE USA’s Vice President for Humanitarian Policy and Practice and former Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations)
Humanitarian operations, programs and policy, government & non-profit approaches to international migration issues
- Ms. Jill Dougherty (Global Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center and CNN contributor on Russia issues, former CNN Moscow Bureau Chief)
Communications, human rights and democracy, Russia and the post-Soviet region, Cold War research and the Space Race
- Mr. Bill Priestap (former Assistant Director of the FBI Counter Intelligence Division)
National Security and counter intelligence, threats posed by Russia and China
- Mr. W. Gyude Moore (Visiting Fellow at the Center for Global Development and former Minister of Public Works for Liberia)
Global Human Development, role of international frameworks, the rise of China and its expanding role in Africa, financing infrastructure in Africa and the changing landscape of development finance on the continent
Students chosen as Junior Centennial Fellows will have the opportunity to meet regularly with their fellows and be exposed to and collaborate with a distinguished practitioner. Junior Centennial Fellows will be expected to provide modest research support for a Centennial Fellow, meet periodically with the Centennial Fellow and work in conjunction with the Fellows and staff to help organize podcasts, op-eds and events. The time commitment is limited to 5 hours per week. Interested students should plan to be available for both Fall and Spring semesters, without obstacles to hiring since a stipend is provided.
Please submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 9th with subject line “JUNIOR FELLOW,” indicating:
- your full name;
- your SFS program (undergraduate year or graduate program and year);
- your major/concentration;
- a short paragraph explaining which Centennial Fellow you are interested in working with, why you are interested, and why you should be chosen; and

After applications are reviewed, candidates will be informed of the decision by mid-September.
