International Affairs Fellowship in International Economics

CFR Seeking Fellowship Applicants for New Economics Fellowships

CFR’s International Affairs Fellowship in International Economics, sponsored by Kimberly Querrey, provides the next generation of economic scholars and business economist hands-on experience in the policymaking field.

Through the program, selected fellows expand their range of thinking and apply their work to international economic policy. Possible placements for the fellowship include but are not limited to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, U.S. Department of Commerce, the Federal Reserve Bank, and relevant parts of the U.S. Department of State. The duration of the fellowship is 6-9 months, and a stipend in the range of $150,000 to $180,000 is awarded along with relocation assistance. 

“Seeing economic research applied to policy action and also be part of it are the best gifts ever! Thank you CFR.”
