Scoville Fellows have the opportunity to work with senior-level staff and to conduct research, write articles and reports, organize talks and conferences sponsored by their host organization, and do public education and advocacy on a range of issues including arms control and nonproliferation, conventional arms trade, environmental and energy security, military budget, and peacekeeping. They may also attend coalition meetings, Congressional hearings, and policy briefings, as well as meetings with policy experts arranged by the program. Scoville Fellows are paid at an annual rate of $32,400 ($2,700 per month), and receive health insurance and travel costs to DC to begin the fellowship.

Prior experience with public-interest activism or advocacy is highly desirable. It is preferred, but not required, that such activities be focused on peace and security issues. Candidates are required to have completed a baccalaureate degree by the time the fellowship commences. The program is open to all U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. eligible for employment. Non-U.S. citizens living outside the United States are not eligible to apply.
