Brenda Schoonover, Carolina's ambassador in residence, asks that faculty make the following information about the Department of State's Foreign Affairs Fellowship Program available to interested students:

* The deadline to apply for the Undergraduate Foreign Affairs Fellowship Program is Feb. 16. The program offers tuition, board and a stipend for undergraduates interested in a graduate degree as well as a junior year summer institute program and the chance to participate in two summer internships with the State Department, both in the U.S. and overseas.

* The deadline to apply for the Graduate Foreign Affairs Fellowship Program is Feb. 26. The program offers tuition, board and a stipend for two years of graduate study as well as the chance to participate in two summer internships with the Sate Department.

Both graduate and undergraduate fellows are required to maintain a minimum GPA of 3.2 as well as meet entry requirements for Foreign Service Officers.

The fellowships are sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. For more information, students can see the foundation's web page at http://www.woodrow.org/public-policy/faf/abstracts.html or stop by Schoonover's office in 409 Hamilton Hall to pick up an informational brochure and/or application.

Schoonover is also glad to talk to students about working for the Foreign Service. She can be reached at 2-8080 or schoonov@email.unc.edu
