Fall 2023 Carlucci Fellows with Faculty Advisors


The Carlucci Fellowship in Security Studies is a unique fellowship designed to serve graduate Public Policy students at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University. It was created by The Marcia and Frank Carlucci Charitable Foundation to generously support students pursuing a career in security studies. Security studies is defined to include traditional defense and intelligence analysis, as well as international security issues such as transnational crime, energy security, and the intricacies of information warfare.



The fellowship awards up to five students a stipend of $5,000 per student to be used in support of a summer internship in the area of security studies, as well as invites them to a unique networking event with some of the nations’ top leaders in national security.


Besides attending the networking reception, fellows will share information learned at their internships with one another and will become part of a growing network of students and alumni who will strengthen Sanford’s work in this area.


All Sanford first-year Masters in Public Policy students enrolled in fall classes are eligible to participate.
