As part of their joint project “Engaging the New Generation of Transatlanticists,” The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) are now accepting applications from university students at U.S. institutions to present their ideas for U.S.-EU cooperation and their vision for the future of transatlantic relations.

GMF and CNAS invite students to send a three-minute (or shorter) video and 250-word written summary outlining a new and unique approach to key issues facing the transatlantic partners. The video can focus on broad contours of the relationship or a specific area for transatlantic cooperation, including but not limited to: technology, defense and security, climate change, and threats to democracy. 

The five competition winners will be invited to join a funded study tour to Europe in July 2022 to meet with officials, experts, and key stakeholders in Brussels and other European capitals.

Apply below and share your video and idea by 11:59 pm EDT on Tuesday, March 15, 2022. Find more information about eligibility and requirements below. For questions, please contact [email protected]
