UF student chosen as Carnegie Junior Fellow
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — University of Florida graduating senior Yevgen Sautin has been selected as a 2012-2013 Carnegie Junior Fellow.
Junior Fellows serve as research assistants for Carnegie Endowment projects and will have the opportunity to co-author journal articles and policy papers, participate in meetings with high-level officials, contribute to congressional testimony and organize briefings attended by scholars, journalists and government officials. Fellows are paid a salary of $3,000 per month for approximately one year, and receive a full benefits package.
Sautin was born in Ukraine, and emigrated from there to Japan to the United States where he attended middle school and high school in Gainesville. He speaks Russian and Ukrainian, and earned degrees in history, economics and political science when he graduates in May. While at UF, Sautin has been active in Student Government and Model UN, and completed a research internship with the Kennan Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C.
Following his fellowship, Sautin plans to earn a doctorate in international relations in preparation for a career in foreign policy.
