Applications are being accepted starting September 12, 2022 through February 3, 2023.

Funded by the State Department, this two-year fellowship program is a unique opportunity for individuals pursuing an IT-related bachelor’s or master’s degree, and who want to use their tech skills to serve diplomacy in the U.S. Foreign Service.
