Atlantische Initiative seeking Fellows
Greetings from the Atlantische Initiative in Berlin, a non-profit NGO dedicated to promoting collaboration between US and European citizens.
Our fellowship and exchange program Atlantic Expedition — funded by the German government — connects a young and diverse group of potential leaders to modernize transatlantic relations.
Fellowship opportunity: Help modernize transatlantic relations while traveling to Chicago, Houston and Berlin! http://atlantic-expedition.org
We would like to thank everyone who promoted the Call for Applications for the last Atlantic Expedition to Hamburg, Dresden and Berlin, which has been a great success.
Participants in this program don’t have to be experts in German-American relations! We consider fresh perspectives and new ideas as crucial to reversing the trend of declining enthusiasm for the partnership. Transatlantic matters affect everyone, and ought therefore to be discussed by everyone.
The fellowship is open to US and German citizens between 20 and 35 years of age. Applicants need only submit a short article (max 1000 words), a one-page CV and a very brief statement of motivation. The deadline is June 18, 2017. Please find more information in our Call for Applications. http://atlantic-expedition.org/apply/
30 fellows will be selected to network, debate and collaborate with their peers and political decision-makers, opinion-leaders and stakeholders from a variety of business sectors and interest groups in Chicago and Houston in October 2017. The fellows will co-author an Atlantic Action Plan, drawing upon their diverse range of skills, interests and experiences. The 15 best fellows will be invited to present the Action Plan during a five-day basecamp in Berlin in spring 2018.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any query or comment.
Thank you very much!
