UNA-NCA Graduate Fellows must be enrolled graduate students in the Washington Metropolitan Area studying international affairs, trade, development, or a discipline related to the United Nations. Commitment of four hours per week is expected from each Fellow – 2 hours for the seminar and 2 hours for seminar preparation and career strategy and mentoring. Part-time students and interns, including young professionals in part-time employment in a related area, are especially encouraged to apply. Students not from the Washington Metropolitan Area may apply with approval of the Graduate Fellows Program Director.
American citizenship is not a requirement and we encourage international students to apply!
The application has five parts:
- The online application
- A one page statement of interest for graduate fellowship program
- A copy of the applicant's unofficial graduate transcript*
- A letter of recommendation
- An updated resume
* If you are currently in your first year of graduate school, so do not yet have a transcript, please provide a copy of your unofficial undergraduate transcript along with a current letter of enrollment for your graduate program
