U.S. Dept. of State Fellowship Opportunity for Community College Students

FAIT Fellowship Webinar

The Foreign Affairs Information Technology Fellowship (FAIT), a two-year program funded by the U.S. Department of State, is a path to a career in the Foreign Service for students in IT-related degree programs.  Community college students are well-positioned to apply for the FAIT Fellowship, because this program provides up to $87,000 in academic funding total for their junior and senior years of their bachelor's degree program. This fellowship also provides two summer internships with stipend support, professional development, and mentorship.  Upon successful completion of the program and the State Department requirements, fellows receive an appointment in the Foreign Service as an Information Management Specialist.

Students are welcome to Register today for the FAIT Fellowship webinar on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, from 2-3:00 pm to learn more about this unique opportunity.

Foreign Affairs Information Technology (FAIT) Fellowship

The Foreign Affairs Information Technology Fellowship for the 2024 cohort is now accepting applications from September 12, 2023, to January 16, 2024.

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.

Go to the Apply page of the FAIT Fellowship website to learn more about applying and to access the application portal.
