U.S. Foreign Policy and International Security Fellows are selected to spend a minimum of ten months and up to one year in-residence at Dartmouth on research and writing about international issues related to one of the Dickey Center's research areas: environment, health, human development, gender, and security. Scholars from all disciplines, including political science and history, are welcome to apply.
U.S. Foreign Policy and International Security Fellows utilize their year at Dartmouth to maximize progress on their research, build contacts with other Fellows, Dartmouth faculty and with policy networks, and contribute to the intellectual life of the College.
All Fellows are assigned a faculty mentor with whom they meet on a regular basis. Faculty mentors are intended to provide professional advice for career building and integrating into the Dartmouth intellectual community as well as substantive expertise.
Fellows typically will:
- Give a faculty seminar on the work discussed in the Dickey Center’s seminar series on international politics and foreign policy
- Present work in the departments of Government, History, and in other seminar series at the College
- Participate with other Fellows in an undergraduate course, taught with a Dartmouth faculty member. Fellows also often make guest appearances in other classes, and interact with undergraduate students in Dickey Center student groups or other organization as interest warrants
- Participate in events for Fellows organized throughout the year – topics will be determined on the basis of mutual interest and perceived need
One of the motivations of the Fellows program is to help bridge the gap between academic work on U.S. foreign policy and international security and the world of policy. Activities in the fellowship program include:
- Seminar on Op Eds, reaching out to media
- Publishing for journals, books
- Workshop on telling the story of your research/ media training/video production
- Networking with policy makers, Dickey Center visitors
- Building professional contacts
- Washington DC outreach, including policy workshops
In addition, a major goal of the fellowship is to build networks. Toward that end, the fellowship seeks to nurture connections among Fellows and between them and practitioners. After Fellows leave Dartmouth, they should expect to be connected to other alumni via social media and USFP/IS alumni events held in Hanover or Washington.
