About this event
Discover how this two-year fellowship program, funded by the U.S. Department of State, is a path to a career in the Foreign Service for individuals who are pursuing IT-related college degrees. The Foreign Affairs Information Technology (FAIT) Fellowship offers both undergraduate and graduate fellowships, providing up to $87,000 in academic funding over two years, summer internships with stipends, professional development and mentorship. And upon successful completion, fellows receive an appointment in the Foreign Service as Information Management Specialists.
Applications for the next cohort will open in September 2022 for individuals who plan to complete their bachelor's, master's, or a dual degree program in an IT-related field in spring 2025. As one of the State Department's premier diversity recruitment programs, the FAIT Fellowship aims to attract top technology talent that represents the ethnic, racial, gender, social, and geographic diversity of the United States. The FAIT Fellowship encourages applications from women, minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, and those with financial need.
