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 issue, 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 eight offices — including locations in Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Belgrade, Ankara, Bucharest, and Warsaw — the DC headquarters serves as home to the management, administration, and external relations practices of the organization. The Transatlantic Academy and U.S. components of flagship programs such as the Marshall Memorial Fellowship are also based in Washington, as are the Foreign Policy & Civil Society and the Urban and Regional Policy programs.
