Transatlantic Fellows Program

The Transatlantic Fellows Program was launched in March 2017 as a follow-on activity to the TRP Roundtable Series to engage American and European policy and opinion-making counterparts, and to build cadre among them by deepening understanding and cooperation, and to develop strategies that will meaningfully counter mounting threats. We view this fellowship program as an essential step forward to reinvigorating the transatlantic partnership.

During the second and third weeks of the program, each fellow will work with a counterpart from whose “host” office—typically a think tank, media outlet, or congressional office—the fellows will conduct the activities and research and pursue the goals that they proposed in the “Transatlantic Project” section of their application.
