Franklin Fellows bring their substantive expertise to bear to help formulate policy or implement programs and projects. In addition to our recurring need for experts in regional affairs, economics, human rights, nonproliferation, and counterterrorism, we also are seeking Fellows to help launch the U.S. Diplomacy Center – the first museum dedicated to telling the story of American diplomacy. We seek experts in American diplomatic history, museum studies, exhibit design, interactive visual displays, business management or educational outreach and program development. Fellows engage in the policymaking process and interact with officials from other Executive Branch departments and agencies. They advance U.S. foreign, economic, and development goals, share their expertise, and enhance their knowledge of government, foreign and domestic policy, and global issues. Fellows gain valuable professional experience and enrich their businesses and organizations upon their return. Successful applicants will be placed in offices at the Department of State or USAID in Washington, DC, or at the United Nations in New York.
