Application Deadline: Tuesday 24 May, 11:59 pm AEST!

Young Australians in International Affairs’ Fellowship Program was launched in January 2015, aimed at promoting the voice of the next generation of Australians foreign policy thinkers in the analysis of international affairs.

 The program is designed to attract leading young Australian analysts and scholars with a background of high professional and academic achievement, outstanding skills in research and analysis, and demonstrated interest or experience in the Fellowship area to which they apply.

Over 6 months, Fellows regularly research and contribute articles to be published online by Young Australians in International Affairs on our blog, Insights.  The Fellowship program is open to Australian citizens and permanent residents between the ages of 18 and 30. Fellowships are an unpaid non-resident post, and Fellows do not have to be currently based in Australia to apply.

Fellows are highly encouraged to take the opportunity to publish more than the required six articles. Fellows are expected to remain abreast of current issues and developments in their field. Failure to do so, or to meet the minimum submission requirements, will see Fellows removed from the program.

One Fellowship will be offered in each of the following positions in the 2016 July-December intake:

Indo-Pacific Fellow
East Asia Fellow
China Fellow
Climate Change and Energy Security Fellow
International Security Fellow
Australian Foreign Policy Fellow
International Trade and Economy Fellow
Europe and Eurasia Fellow
US Fellow
Middle East and North Africa Fellow

  • A copy of your latest CV (including list of relevant publications), and
