Annie Himes, 2016 alumna, has received the James Gaither Junior Fellows Scholarship at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. She is one of only 10 students selected in the U.S. to serve as research assistant and the only one selected for the Russia/Eurasia program.
Each year the endowment offers 10-12 one-year fellowships to recent graduates selected from a pool of nominees from nearly 400 participating colleges. Carnegie junior fellows work as research assistants to the endowment's senior associates.
Himes earned degrees in Russian, history and global studies as well as minors in Spanish, English, human rights, humanitarian affairs, women’s and gender studies and political science. She is teaching in Saratov, Russia through the Fulbright program.
The CEIP is a unique global network of policy research centers in Russia, China, Europe, the Middle East, India, and the United States. Established in 1910, it advances the cause of peace through analysis and development of fresh policy ideas and direct engagement and collaboration with decisionmakers in government, business, and civil society.
