Come to this virtual information session to learn about U.S. Treasury’s Junior Fellowship Opportunity.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of International Affairs (IA) seeks outstanding new college graduates to help advance IA’s mission to support U.S. economic prosperity by strengthening the global economy, preventing and mitigating international financial instability, and tackling existing and newly evolving global challenges.
About the Program:
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. Most fellows leave the program to pursue graduate degrees (e.g. law, public policy, international relations, and finance and business) or opportunities in the U.S. government or with other organizations. Junior Fellows have a wide range of responsibilities, providing them with 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, providing administrative support, and conducting analytical studies. Fellows also prepare briefings materials and help coordinate bilateral and multilateral meetings for senior Treasury officials to engage with counterparts at international financial institutions like the IMF, Word Bank, and global fora like the G7 and G20. Junior fellows often participate in such meetings, including with finance ministers, central bankers, and other global financial leaders, and may have opportunities to travel abroad. Junior Fellows will be placed in either a regional or functional office. Regional offices oversee Treasury’s engagement with counterparts across the world. Functional offices oversee Treasury’s engagement with international financial intuitions and structure broader Treasury policy on issues ranging from climate change, to export credits, to foreign exchange. Positions are usually filled at the GS-9 level."
