The John Quincy Adams Society has developed the virtual Marcellus Policy Fellowship to help the next generation of U.S. foreign policy leaders. By combining knowledge of foreign policy, the craft of effective policy writing, and the ability to publicize his ideas, Adams launched a career shaping U.S. statecraft. The Marcellus Policy Fellowship does the same, helping our fellows develop the ideas and skills necessary to guide American foreign policy in the twenty-first century.

Over the course of several months, Marcellus Policy Fellows wrestle with ideas that can animate a prudent foreign policy. They hone their writing skills under expert guidance, crafting a detailed policy paper and a related policy memorandum and op-ed. All this strengthens their candidacy for roles in an increasingly competitive foreign policy career space.

The Society selects 8-12 Fellows for each of two virtual cohorts a year (a Spring Cohort and a Fall Cohort). The Fellowship is open to current students (graduate and undergraduate) as well as those with 0-2 years of employment in the foreign policy space. U.S. citizenship is not required. Fellows receive a $750 stipend.
