International Affairs Junior Fellowship

The Junior Fellowship program is a highly selective, fixed two-year program for new college graduates to work shaping international economic policy for the United States in the US Department of Treasury’s Office of International Affairs.

Junior Fellows have exposure to multiple policy issues and opportunities to enhance their knowledge and skills. They typically perform a variety of tasks that include developing policy proposals, analyzing international economic and financial developments, and conducting analytical studies. Fellows also support bilateral and multilateral meetings for senior Treasury officials engaging counterparts at the IMF, World Bank, G7, and G20 – to name a few. Junior Fellows often participate in such meetings and may have opportunities to travel abroad.

Junior Fellows are usually hired at the GS-9 level and receive standard Treasury benefits.


Strong candidates will have recently received – or will soon receive – a bachelor’s degree with relevant coursework in economics, public policy, finance, international relations, or related fields. IA is committed to attracting and developing a diverse and inclusive workforce. We recognize that different perspectives and experiences among our employees are workforce strengths and contribute to better policy-making.
