The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship is a program established to
provide college graduates with the opportunity to gain a Washington
perspective on issues related to peace and security.

Spend six to nine months working full-time on research and/or advocacy on a range of issues concerning security, including disarmament, nuclear and conventional arms control, environmental security, peacekeeping, and the military budget.  Scoville Fellows have written fact sheets, letters to the editor, articles and reports, and been quoted in the media.  They may attend policy briefings, and Congressional hearings, and have meetings with experts in the field.  Many Scoville Fellows have taken jobs following their fellowship with one of the participating organizations or with the Federal Government.

The fellowship is named for the late Dr. Herbert Scoville, Jr., a long-time public servant and advocate of international peace and nuclear arms control.
