We’re excited to announce that the Foreign Affairs Information Technology Fellowship application for the 2024 cohort is now open!

There are two deadlines to keep in mind:

Early Review Deadline: Jan 2, 2024: Submit your application by this date so that the FAIT Fellowship team can review your application to make sure all documents are submitted correctly. This gives you time to resubmit documents before the final deadline.
Final Deadline: Jan 16, 2024 at 11:59 pm (EST): Any applications submitted after this date will not be considered.
This is a two-year diversity fellowship program, funded by the State Department, offering both undergraduate and graduate fellowships. The fellowship provides academic funding while preparing FAIT Fellows to enter the Foreign Service as an Information Management Specialist (IMS). When FAIT Fellows complete the fellowship and meet the Foreign Service entry requirements, they will receive an appointment as an IMS.

What Are the Benefits of the FAIT Fellowship?
FAIT Fellows receive:

Up to $43,500 annually (for two years) in academic funding for tuition, room and board, books, mandatory fees, and some travel expenses.
Two summer internships (with stipends, housing, and travel allowances): a domestic internship in Washington, D.C. and an overseas internship at a U.S. embassy or consulate.
Professional development and personalized mentoring throughout the program.
And best of all, upon successful completion, Fellows will enter the Foreign Service as an IMS and launch an exciting career traveling the world and supporting diplomacy through technology.

What Are the Eligibility Requirements?
The FAIT Fellowship offers both undergraduate and graduate fellowships. To be eligible to apply for the 2024 cohort, applicants must be a U.S. citizen, hold a minimum cumulative 3.2 GPA on a 4.0 scale, and be on a timeline to graduate with either an IT-related bachelor’s or master’s degree in spring 2026. They also must be enrolled full-time in an IT-related degree program during the two-year fellowship program.

See the website to view all eligibility requirements.
