Student Opportunities

Research Assistants

Our Research Assistants contribute to the existing research projects of the World Peace Foundation, as well as assist with the planning and conduct of our seminar series and other events. Research Assistants are current graduate students at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and their work can be tailored to their own research interests and background. Our 2014 – 2015 Research Assistants are Clint Shoemake and Lauren Spink. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about these opportunities.

No longer taking applications for 2015-2016 Research Assistants.


Annual Student Seminar Competition

The World Peace Foundation at the Fletcher School annually invites Fall proposals from students at the Fletcher School for a two-day seminar to be held on campus in the Spring semester. WPF seminars offer a rare opportunity for leading experts to engage in incisive, collegial and sustained dialogue on the pressing problems of our day. The student competition enables Fletcher School students to frame an issue and interact with leading global experts on the topic of their choosing. Submission dates are announced at the beginning of the academic year.
