USAID International Development Fellowship Program


The Payne Program welcomes applications from individuals with any undergraduate major. Common majors may include Economics, Political Science, Business, International Studies, English, Sociology, Communications, Languages, Regional Studies and others.  While there is no required course of study, the panel is interested in seeing challenging academic programs and coursework in areas such as Mathematics/Quantitative Courses or Sciences, English, Economics, Business or Management, Government/Political Science, and Foreign Languages or Studies. Coursework in these areas is not required but can be a useful indicator of success in the program and beyond.

Applicants must:

  • be U.S. citizens;
  • be seeking admission to enter graduate school in fall 2014 for a two-year program at a U.S. university
  • have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale at the time of application
