Call for Applications: Andrássy National Security Fellowship

“It is always better to be sure that we cannot be harmed, 
than to assume that no one wants to harm us.”
   – Gyula Andrássy

The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA), together with The Hungary Initiatives Foundation (HIF), is pleased to announce the fourth call for applications for the Andrássy National Security Fellowship – a six-month fellowship program aimed at cultivating the next generation of Hungarian strategic thinkers committed to strengthening ties between Hungary and the United States.

During their time in Washington, Andrássy Fellows will work with CEPA’s team of experts and scholars to conduct independent research closely coordinated with one or more of CEPA’s analytical programs – Strategy and Statecraft, Strengthening Frontline Security, StratCom, and Bolstering Atlanticism. Fellows will have the opportunity to showcase their research findings via podcasts, expert roundtable discussions, and written policy briefs. Andrássy Fellows will participate in outreach to the U.S. policy and expert communities.

Fellows will also work with core CEPA staff on a full spectrum of think tank processes including, policy briefings, brainstorming sessions, networking, and program planning and administration. CEPA will provide a $3000 monthly stipend, cover roundtrip travel to Washington, D.C., and provide assistance for the Fellow’s visa application process. The fellowship period will run from May to October 2019.
