Support the Scoville Peace Fellowship
The Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization. Gifts to the Scoville Peace Fellowship are tax deductible, as allowed by law. The fellowship is financed by tax-deductible contributions from individuals and grants from foundations.
The Scoville Fellowship was established in 1987 to provide a unique opportunity for recent college and graduate school alumni to work with leading think tanks and advocacy groups in Washington, DC. The many peace and security challenges we face today, including wars, terrorism, weapons proliferation, and threats to security caused by climate change require new talent to address and solve these problems. By investing in these young people, we help to create a new generation of policy experts and advocates committed to working for peace and international security. The program has been very successful in recruiting top graduates who have made significant contributions in both research, writing, and advocacy to their host organizations. In addition, many Scoville Fellows contribute to work in the field and assume positions of preeminence with public-interest organizations, the federal government, academia, and media.
The Scoville Fellowship enjoys the support and respect of the peace and security community. In November 2005 the Peace and Security Initiative released the results of a survey of over fifty people from non-profits and foundations entitled “Next Generation of Talent.” The survey lists as its first recommendation, in a section titled “Increase Financial Support for Attracting Young People,”
“Additional funding for NGOs to support intern stipends and young professional benefits would help organizations directly. Better funding of fellowships –particularly the successful yet under-resourced Scoville Fellowship Program–and other community opportunities to help young people would also help in this regard.”
