The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) is a nonpartisan network of 130+ organizations working in 181 countries to end violent conflict and build peace.
Our members include some of the world’s largest development organizations, most innovative academic institutions, and most influential humanitarian and faith-based groups. We build coalitions in key areas of strategy and policy to elevate the entire peacebuilding field, tackling issues too large for any one organization to address alone.
Our Mission is to champion greater peacebuilding influence, impact, and innovation to avert wars, end violence, and save lives. Our program areas include Policy & Advocacy, Learning & Evaluation, and Public Awareness & Partnerships. Scoville Fellows will work in AfP’s Policy & Advocacy Program.
A Scoville Fellow would have the opportunity to work on a range of AfP’s policy initiatives and technical areas, including local peacebuilding, countering violent extremism, conflict prevention, gender, and building the evidence base for peacebuilding. The fellow would gain knowledge of how these areas are incorporated into U.S. foreign policy, and would have the opportunity to engage with Congress, the State Department, USAID, the Pentagon, and the National Security Council. Fellows would work with senior staff to determine project areas according to the fellow’s interests and organizational needs.
Projects may include supporting one or more AfP Working Groups, researching and writing policy briefs, op-eds, and/or reports on peacebuilding-centered foreign policy, and specific projects in the fellow’s interest area. Fellows would network with staff of AfP’s 130+ organizational members frequently and participate in various coalition groups.
