HIF is proud to announce a new fellowship opportunity for Hungarian professionals as part of the Atlantic Council’s new Atlanticist Fellowship program. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

THE APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR THIS FELLOWSHIP HAS PASSED

As part of a long-term reinvestment in bolstering US-Central European ties and a new effort to build stronger people-to-people connections between Americans and Central Europeans, the Atlantic Council is launching the Atlanticist Fellowship program, a full-time, in-house residency within the Council for 6 months, focused on policy relevant work. The fellowship will run from late June to late December, 2018.

The program’s goal is to increase US engagement with Central Europe and to foster champions of the transatlantic relationship both in the region and in the United States. To achieve this, the Council will gather together top leaders from across all sectors of Central Europe who share the Council’s mission, sponsor their professional development, and integrate them into the Council’s network of policymakers, thought leaders, and advocates.

The Hungarian fellow will preferably have experience working in the energy sector. Ideal candidates will possess an entrepreneurial spirit, bold vision for the future, character to lead and inspire, and passion for solving global challenges.

Through the Atlanticist Fellowship, fellows will:

  • Become integral staff members of the Atlantic Council’s Europe team, including a full stipend, office space, and dedicated funds for professional travel, publications, and mentorship;
  • Lead a specific project in their desired area of expertise with an Atlantic Council mentor;
  • Form part of a larger team of policy entrepreneurs and researchers from Central and Eastern Europe and work together on a common project on US-Central European relations to include both a written product and a public event; and
  • Join the Council’s network of policymakers, thought leaders, and advocates during and after the conclusion of the program.

The deadline to apply for the 2018 Atlanticist Fellowship is Tuesday, May 1. Please do not hesitate to visit our website or contact Denise Forsthuber at dforsthuber@atlanticcouncil.org if you have any questions about the application process or the fellowship itself.
