2015 Foreign Policy Interrupted Fellowship Program for Women Passionate about Foreign Policy & International Affairs.

Application Deadline: March 22nd 2015

Foreign Policy Interrupted’s Fellowship program is targeted to diversifying voices and opinions in the foreign policy space. The program has two core components:

  • An educational module that includes media training, a guide to understanding the media, and brand building
  • A non-resident “externship” with a major media outlet. Fellows will work with a given outlet and editor to better understand the inner workings of a news organization; and to develop the fellow’s portfolio and voice around her expertise

The educational module runs for six weeks online, for one-hour each week.

At the conclusion of the module, fellows will be matched with an editor and/or producer with whom she’ll work to develop her expertise for print and/or on-camera appearances. This “externship” will run at minimum for one month up to three months


  • FPI’s Fellows Program is open to women 25 and older with a clear commitment and passion for foreign policy and international affairs.
  • The program is open to academics, entrepreneurs, journalists, students, and business professionals.
  • The program is open to both US citizens and non-US citizens, fluent in English.
  • Applicants must be available for six weeks starting in June, for an hour each week.
  • A commitment to foreign policy is not an interest or hobby, but demonstrated engagement in foreign policy matters and/or a foreign policy matter.
  • Demonstrated engagement is work in the field.
  • Applicants for an FPI Fellowship ideally have at least three years of full-time professional experience.
  • For interruptors on an academic track, applicants must have completed their master’s degree.
