Foreign Service IT Fellowship

The U.S. Department of State is sponsoring an IT fellowship for students in IT-related majors. There are two different fellowship opportunities: one for undergraduates and one for graduates.

The undergraduate fellowship is available only for sophomores. Accepted applicants will be working for two summer. For one summer, they will work in Washington, D.C. with the Department of State. During the second summer, they will work a Foreign Affairs job at an embassy abroad. The fellowship will also cover $37,500 annually for tuition, room & board, books, fees, and other travel expenses.

The graduate fellowship is available for seniors who have already been accepted into a Master’s or Integrated program. The accepted applicants will do the same jobs in both summers as the undergraduate applicants.

At the end of both the undergraduate and graduate fellowships, the accepted applicants are guaranteed jobs with the U.S. Department of State. Both positions require a five-year commitment after completion of work for the Department of State. Students applying must be currently enrolled in an IT degree.
