Partnership for a Secure America's Congressional Partnership Program (CPP), formerly known as the Congressional Fellowship Program (CFP), is now seeking participants--Due April 16th
This opportunity is for Congressional staff interested in generating dialogue and developing the skills and relationships required to advance bipartisanship on national security and foreign policy issues.

Intimate discussions with policymakers and members of Partnership for a Secure America's Advisory Board
An interactive seminar designed to enhance negotiation and communication skills
A dynamic simulation of a National Security Council meeting with former high-level officials playing the role of National Security Advisor
An off-site weekend retreat that includes in-depth policy discussions on vital national security and foreign policy issues
Opportunities to engage with top national security figures and past CPP participants in small-group discussions
CPP participants have engaged in discussions with such PSA Advisory Board members as former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake, former Homeland Security Advisor Frances Townsend, and former National Security Advisor Robert McFarlane, published op-eds in international newspapers, and gained valuable connections that developed into bipartisan and bicameral professional relationships.
