Atlantic Expedition Fellowship & Exchange program


We would like to inform you of our new fellowship and exchange program, Atlantic Expedition, for 20-35 year old German and US citizens with an interest in the European-American partnership: young professionals in the public, private and military sectors, and college and graduate students of all disciplines.

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.

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.

Thank you very much!

Kind regards,

Dr. Johannes Bohnen
