Position description

Foreign Policy is seeking talented, early-career journalists for its 2018-2019 fellowship program.

The yearlong position offers candidates the chance to work closely with our team of experienced editors and writers analyzing policy and the most important developments around the world. We consider fellows to be essential members of the team.

We’re looking for curious, creative, and quick-thinking candidates who have a passion for international politics, a solid grasp of policy, and a commitment to high-quality journalism. A sense of humor doesn’t hurt either.

Applicants should have a high level of interest in the nuts and bolts of putting together both a web and print magazine, a proven ability to navigate the line between academic writing and general interest journalism, a keen sense of the news cycle, and know how to juggle multiple projects on tight deadline.


  • Fact-check the bimonthly print magazine
  • Assist in all elements of print and web production
  • Edit stories for FP and prepare them for publication under the supervision of editors
  • Help write and curate email newsletters
  • Review pitches
  • Help generate article ideas


  • Strong academic credentials, including at least a bachelor’s degree
  • Previous journalism experience
  • Demonstrated interest in world news and international politics and policy
  • Preferred: Experience living outside the United States and/or knowledge of a language other than English

Application instructions

Send a résumé and cover letter by applying below. Also, please include two references and three writing samples, especially published clips (if you have them). Finalists will be asked to complete editing and fact-checking tests.

Applications are due March 15. Fellowships typically begin in early September.
