GMF’s Leadership Programs (LP) cultivates the next generation of leaders on both sides of the Atlantic. By fostering a community of leaders with diverse life experiences and political perspectives along with a commitment to the transatlantic partnership, LP advances GMF’s transatlantic agenda on the future of democracy, inclusive and sustainable societies, security and defense, geopolitics, and technology and innovation. Based on the principles of democracy, human rights, and international cooperation, LP builds leadership capacity through fellowships, action grants, newly enhanced digital networks, distance learning, and the engagement of more than 4,000 alumni throughout Europe, the United States, and partnership countries. LP's portfolio of initiatives for established, mid-career, and next-generation leaders includes the Marshall Memorial Fellowship (MMF), the Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders Network (TILN), the Manfred Wörner Seminar (MWS), the Policy Designers Network (PDN), and the Leadership Lab (LL).

Our Traveling Cohort Spring 2022

GMF is delighted to announce that we will begin our in-person fellowship travels again after a two-year hiatus. This week, the Marshall Memorial Fund Fellowship is welcoming its spring cohort to an introduction week in Washington. Afterwards, the American fellows will travel to Brussels, Amsterdam, The Hague, Copenhagen, London, Ankara, Istanbul, Lisbon, Rome, Budapest, Bratislava, and Prague. The European fellows will travel to New York, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Chicago, San Antonio, Spanish Fork, Portland, Boise, Los Angeles, and Seattle.

Given the multiple and unprecedented challenges that the United States and Europe are currently facing, it is crucial to send our MMF fellows on this exchange to support the GMF mission and foster transatlantic dialogues, allowing them to get to know their transatlantic partners better.

Stay tuned as they share content from their trip, meetings, and unique experiences on GMFs various communication channels!
