Founded in 1978, the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy, an integral part of the Walsh School of Foreign Service, brings together diplomats, other practitioners, scholars and students from across and beyond Georgetown University to explore global challenges and evolving demands of diplomatic statecraft, to better understand the nexus of theory and practice, and to enhance and expand an appreciation of the role of diplomacy as a critical tool in national policy.

Fellowships in Diplomacy – Call for Proposals (2015-2016)

The ISD Fellowship in Diplomacy program provides academic credit and a tuition stipend to selected undergraduates and graduates in the Walsh School of Foreign Service who wish to pursue independent research projects that focus on on-going and emerging diplomatic issues. The Institute pairs students with advisers drawn from ISD senior staff, Georgetown University faculty and Washington-based practitioners. The research project begins during the fall semester and culminates in a substantial, 30 page study that is presented during the spring semester. The ISD Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in other ISD activities. For information on how to apply, click here.
