Established in 1999, the National Intelligence Fellowship provides an opportunity for an outstanding senior intelligence officer to participate in and contribute to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) activities and events. The fellowship provides a broader understanding of political, economic, diplomatic, and military dimensions of international affairs through engagement with CFR's fellows, members, and other experts. Conversely, the National Intelligence Fellow strengthens CFR's knowledge and understanding of national intelligence and its role and contributions to foreign policy and national security.
Each year, candidates from the intelligence community are nominated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and interviewed by CFR. Interested candidates should contact their human resources officer to learn more about the application process.
A list of former National Intelligence Fellows can be found online by visiting Historical Roster of CFR's National Intelligence Fellows.
