Jeane Kirkpatrick Fellowship and Scholars Program
The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) is pleased to announce the opening of the application process for the Jeane Kirkpatrick Fellows Program in Foreign and Defense Policy studies. The deadline for applications is December 15, 2022. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.
Two Jeane Kirkpatrick Visiting Research Fellows will be selected for two-year terms in AEI’s Foreign and Defense Policy department. Guided by the belief that American liberties are best preserved by a robust national defense and US global leadership, these fellows will conduct in-depth research to produce policy recommendations intended to enhance American security and interests.
Fellows will have the opportunity to work alongside senior resident scholars in AEI’s Foreign and Defense Policy department. Additionally, AEI will assist fellows in developing and disseminating their research by providing the support and training needed to publish serious longer works, place their work in the nation’s most-read publications, brief policymakers, and host public and private events at the Institute.
The program is open to exceptional doctoral students who have finished their coursework and whose thesis work is in an area of interest and relevance to AEI’s Foreign and Defense Policy scholars, young scholars who have finished their PhD dissertation and are looking for an opportunity to deepen and expand on their work, and junior faculty who seek to apply their scholarly interests to the public policy realm.
Qualified applicants should apply at www.aei.org/jobs with a resume and 1,000-word statement addressing academic interests, how this fellowship will enhance their professional goals, and which scholars they would like to work with in AEI’s Foreign and Defense Policy department.
