The aim of the program is to broaden the transatlantic debate beyond established political circles, to seek new perspectives and ideas shaped by a wide variety of academic, professional and cultural backgrounds.


Participants will meet decision-makers and stakeholders during group trips to Chicago and Houston in the US, or Berlin, Hamburg and Dresden in Germany. Fellows will also collaborate online to produce policy memos for modernizing European-American relations.

We would greatly appreciate it if you were to share this opportunity, either by forwarding this email, or by posting the following to social media:Fellowship opportunity: Help modernize transatlantic relations, while travelling to Germany and the US! http://bit.ly/2cGN4fI 

Applicants don't have to be experts! We are specifically in search of new points of view and bold ideas from a diverse group of young leaders. Transatlantic matters affect everyone, and ought therefore to be discussed by everyone.

Those interested in participating need to submit a short article (500-1000 words) analyzing the current state of European-American relations, with a focus on whichever sub-topic interests them most – however niche or marginal. The deadline for applications for the first expedition is November 16, 2016.
