Pre-Registration Completion, which runs December 7th - 10th, is intended for students who requested but were not given a full schedule during Pre-Registration. During this period, those students may add and drop courses with MyAccess. Participation in Pre-Registration Completion is mandatory for undergraduate students who did not participate in Pre-Registration and for full-time undergraduate students with fewer than 12 credits. Students who did not Pre-Register need Dean or graduate department approval before registering through MyAccess. Students who were given a full schedule during Pre-Registration who wish to add and drop courses may do so as well.
Pre-Registration Completion is staggered to start at different times. View schedule here. Students may not register earlier than their scheduled time; however, they may register thereafter through December 10th. Registration for continuing students reopens on December 20th and will remain open through January 17th.
the Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship, a highly-competitive national program that provides college and grad school graduates the opportunity to work in Washington, DC, with one of more than two dozen participating public-interest organizations focusing on international security issues. The program has awarded 148 fellowships since its inception in 1987 and is offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall. It lasts from six to nine months and provides a salary, health insurance, and travel costs to Washington. The Scoville Fellowship does not award grant or scholarship money to students.
Scoville Fellows may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, public education, and advocacy in support of the goals of their host organization and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and Congressional hearings. Fellows have written articles, blogs, fact sheets, letters to the editor, op-eds and reports, organized talks and conferences, and been interviewed as experts by the media. Former Scoville Fellows work for U.S. and international NGOs, the Departments of Defense, Energy, State, and Treasury, members of Congress, academia, and media, and attend graduate school in political science or international relations, following their fellowships.
Please encourage those interested in peace and security issues to visit our website at www.scoville.org. The Scoville Fellowship is a small organization and we lack the resources to send staff to college career fairs and to post jobs on individual university websites. Although the majority of Scoville Fellows have received college degrees in political science, government, international relations, history, or peace studies, we do not require a specific major. Application requirements are listed on our website, as are links to the websites of each of the participating groups and information on the work of current and former Scoville Fellows. The next application deadline is for the fall 2014 fellowship.
All U.S. citizens, as well as non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. who have an appropriate work permit, are eligible to apply; foreign nationals living outside the United States are not.

Women's Foreign Policy Group 2014 Spring Internship Program
WFPG believes that it is crucial to ensure that women's voices are heard and women leaders are fully engaged on policy decisions. At WFPG, we advance women's leadership and highlight their contributions through international issues and mentoring programs. The organization convenes professionals from across disciplines and broadens the constituency for international affairs. WFPG offers internships year-round and hires three to five interns to assist them each semester.
Special Benefits: Exposure to mid and senior-level professionals from across the international affairs field and opportunities to earn more about international issues, leadership development and the operations of a small nonprofit. WFPG events and co-sponsored events are a great opportunity to get a feel for the way international issues are discussed, and to mingle with past and current women leaders. WFPG interns also have the privilege to attend other events in DC at the State Department, think tanks, and embassies.
Compensation: Part-time internships are unpaid or for college credit. Full-time interns who commit to 3.5 months during the school year or 3 months during the summer are eligible for a $1,000 stipend upon completion of the internship.
WFPG is looking for responsible and motivated interns to focus on planning and outreach for programs with international affairs experts and officials. In addition to assisting with Author and Embassy Series programs, interns also contribute to Celebrating Women Leaders Benefit Luncheons. Interns also research foreign policy topics before events, assist in media outreach and the production of our newsletter, update the WFPG database and webpage, and complete other tasks as assigned.
WFPG is also looking for a specialized intern to focus on the production of WFPG newsletter and communication materials, media outreach, and webpage design/updates in addition to research and other general office duties. Communications interns also assist in production of materials for major fundraisers and update the WFPG brochure.
Competitive candidates for both positions should have a demonstrated interest in foreign affairs and excellent computer skills. Interns must possess outstanding office and phone manners, and excellent writing skills, in addition to being well-organized, punctual, dependable, flexible, attentive to detail, and able to work both independently and as part of a team. Knowledge of basic HTML, basic photo editing, and MS Publisher are also beneficial for communications intern applicants. Applicants must be available to work a minimum of two full days a week.
