“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 Andrássy National Security Fellowship is a ten-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 DC area experts and scholars to conduct independent research closely coordinated with analytical programs.
- The fellow will undertake a specific research program rooted in his/her specific areas of interest within the general framework of immigration, which will result in a published report at the end of the fellowship;
- The fellow will be a contributing team member of the CIS, participating in their broader research, coalition-building and advocacy initiatives;
- The fellow will initiate and organize public events either related to his/her specific research interests or as part of the Centers’ overall work, with support from other CIS fellows, the CIS public affairs team and events staff;
The Andrássy Fellowship provides a monthly stipend commensurate with the fellow’s experience to cover living expenses in Washington, roundtrip air travel to Washington, D.C. and support for domestic professional travel as well as assistance for the Fellow’s visa application process.
The fellowship period is anticipated to run from September to July.

The Andrássy Fellowship was conceived in the spirit and legacy of Hungarian statesman Gyula Andrássy, who served as Prime Minister of Hungary (1867–1871) and Foreign Minister of Austria-Hungary. Alongside Bismarck, he was an architect of European order gifted, in the words of a contemporary, “with great perspicacity, large minded and liberal views, and the decision of character so necessary to be a ruler of men … ever governed by a feeling of justice and honour in the performance of his duty.”
