The Pamela Harriman Foreign Service Fellowships
The Pamela Harriman Foreign Service Fellowship was established by the College of William and Mary in 2000 in honor of Pamela Harriman, "patriot, diplomat, philanthropist, friend of the arts, and mentor to a generation of public servants." The fellowship, given to three distinguished State Department interns annually, provides placement in summer professional positions in the Office of the Secretary of State in Washington D.C. or in the U.S. Embassies in London and Paris.
Fellows are placed in one of three fellowship posts: the U.S. Embassy in London, the Office of the Secretary of State in Washington, D.C., or the U.S. Embassy in Paris. A $5,000 stipend for travel and living expenses is included.
- be a U.S. citizen
- be a junior or a senior, planning to continue on to graduate school
- apply separately for and be accepted to the U.S. Department of State Summer Internship Program for the year of application

Special Application Process: Interested candidates must first apply for the Dept. of State internship program in the fall. Interns are generally selected and notified by February. At that time, the Harriman Office contacts eligible candidates and invites them to apply for the Harriman Fellowship. Students may not apply for the Harriman Fellowship directly, without going through these steps.
External deadline: November 1st (for Department of State Summer Internship Program)
