University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill alumna, Caroline Zullo, Class of 2015, has been selected for the elite Carnegie Junior Fellows Program. She is Carolina’s first recipient of the one-year award in 25 years of record keeping by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The Junior Fellows program provides substantive work experience at the Carnegie Endowment for students and recent graduates with career interests in international affairs.
Caroline, 22, is one of only 14 selected for the prestigious program from a pool of almost 200 applicants representing nearly 150 institutions. As a Junior Fellow, she will work full-time at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, D.C. as a paid research assistant to the endowment’s senior associates.
“We are tremendously proud of Caroline for being UNC-Chapel Hill’s first Junior Fellow of record,” said Chancellor Carol L. Folt. “With her deep commitment to the advancement of peace and international affairs, I know her year with the Carnegie Endowment will be a transformative experience that will set her on course for a brilliant career in humanitarian affairs.”
Caroline, from Raleigh, North Carolina, is the daughter of Gary and Lisa Zullo. She graduated with honors from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2015 with a double major in political science and global studies and a minor in Arabic from the College of Arts and Sciences. She is currently teaching English to Palestinian high school students in East Jerusalem through the Amideast Educational and Training Services.
“I am truly honored to be Carolina’s first Junior Fellow of record and to be working with the Middle East program,” said Zullo. “It is an invaluable opportunity not only to research and write about pressing topics in the Middle East, but also to learn from acclaimed Carnegie scholars and senior associates.”
