PCFR Student Fellows Program

Individual and Corporate Membership Fellow

About the PCFR Student Fellows Program:

The Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations (PCFR) Student Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for graduate students attending Arizona Universities who have a demonstrated interest and focus on international affairs or related industries. Students can reside anywhere in Arizona to be eligible for this fellowship. Accommodations will be made for selected fellows who live outside of Greater Phoenix.  

This fellowship, which is intended for those who plan to stay in the metro Phoenix area following completion of their degree, is highly selective and will provide graduate students unique opportunities to work on strategic projects for Arizona’s premier foreign affairs organization. Students accepted to the program benefit from access to PCFR’s entire annual calendar of events, each of which features a leader in global politics, research, law, or business.

The one-year fellowship (with the option to reapply the following year) also offers participants an entry point to interact with, and receive mentorship from PCFR’s membership, which includes a significant number of retired ambassadors, diplomats, and others with broad international experience.

Expectations for Fellows:

If selected, a PCFR Student Fellow is expected to adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Required to participate in PCFR events, attending at least 75 percent of all programs (both in-person and virtually).

  2. Maintain active participation in the relevant PCFR committee according to their chosen track, including attending all committee meetings, completing projects as requested by and coordinated with the committee co-chairs; and responding timely whenever contacted by committee members, the PCFR Executive Director, or the PCFR Student Fellowship Program coordinator.
