The program seeks individuals interested in helping to shape a freer, more secure and prosperous world through formulating, representing, and implementing U.S. foreign policy.

The Program encourages applications from members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service and those with financial need. The International Affairs Graduate Fellowship Program provides support for graduate school, professional development, and entry into the U.S. Foreign Service.
