Inviting Applications Through January 27, 2014
The German Marshall Fund of the United States announces the launch of the third Asmus Policy Entrepreneurs Fellowship. Applicants must be U.S. or European citizens under the age of 40. Entries must include a brief proposal of a project that they believe will address an important foreign or economic policy issue and will advance transatlantic cooperation. The fellowship is in honor of Ronald D. Asmus, GMF Brussels office executive director and director of strategic planning, who dedicated his life to the principles of freedom and passed away on April 30, 2011.
Over the course of the year, Asmus Fellows will utilize existing GMF activities and networks to advance their policy questions and to frame policy alternatives before summarizing their results by the year’s end. Fellows will also be invited to attend several GMF programs, and may be invited to present on a topic and/or participate in or facilitate dialogues at some of these events. GMF will allocate funding per Fellow for fellowship-related expenses.
Applicants must submit a letter of intent not to exceed two pages. The letter of intent should articulate the candidate’s policy project, proposed scope of work, its demonstration of creativity and innovations, and proposed implementation. Submission must also include two letters of recommendation supporting the candidate and the proposed project. All materials should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applications must be received by January 27, 2014.
The contest is administered by the German Marshall Fund of the United States, which strengthens transatlantic cooperation on regional, national, and global challenges and opportunities in the spirit of the Marshall Plan.
