The Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations (PCFR) Student Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for graduate students attending Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, W.P. Carey School of Business, or Thunderbird School of Global Management who have a demonstrated interest and focus on international affairs or related industries.
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 is only open to one student per target institution per cycle. 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 two-year fellowship (pending satisfactory performance after the first year) also offers participants an entry point to interact with and receive mentorship from PCFR’s members, a significant number of whom are retired ambassadors, diplomats, or have extensive international experience.
Students who hope to become a Fellow are encouraged to engage with PCFR by attending events at the student rate, and to apply for the program as early as possible.
