The German Marshall Fund’s Washington, DC, office serves as the headquarters for GMF’s global activities. Located steps from Dupont Circle in the U.S. capital, it is an excellent location for convening leading thinkers, diplomats, and government officials from both sides of the Atlantic on every transatlantic issues, and often on those yet to arise.
Similar to the work carried out in all of GMF’s offices, the office manages grants, proposals, and exchange programs; it holds seminars, meetings, and other dialogues; and it produces original scholarly work. While most of GMF’s activities are shared across six offices—including locations in Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Belgrade, Ankara, and Bucharest—the DC headquarters serves as home to the management, administration, and external relations practices of the organization. The U.S. components of flagship programs such as the Marshall Memorial Fellowship, the Transatlantic Trends annual survey, and the Transatlantic Academy are also based in Washington, as are the Foreign Policy & Civil Society and the Economic Policy programs.
