Foreign Affairs IT Fellowship

The application for the fellowship will open October 2018. The website (http://www.twc.edu/programs/foreign-affairs-information-technology-fellowship) is the best place to guide students since the brochure is being updated. The fellowship is open to current sophomores and seniors who will enter a two year graduate school program upon graduation.

If you're pursuing an IT-related degree and interested in using technology solutions for the business of diplomacy, particularly if you are a member of an underrepresented group, the Foreign Affairs Information Technology Fellowship (FAIT) could be your path to a rewarding career. This fellowship offers you a truly unique opportunity, including financial support, mentoring and professional development, as well as guaranteed employment in the U.S. Foreign Service.

Administered by Washington Center, this U.S. Department of State fellowship program aims to diversify the ranks of Information Management Specialists serving in the U.S. Foreign Service with traditionally underrepresented minority groups. This includes but is not limited to racial, religious and gender minorities, as well as those with financial need. If accepted you’ll receive the financial support, mentoring and professional development to prepare you for a career in the Foreign Service. Upon successfully completing the program and the Foreign Affairs IT Specialist entry requirements, you will receive an appointment as a Foreign Service Information Management Specialist (IMS).
