Foreign Policy Fellowship Program -- The Wilson Center
The Wilson Center has now opened up applications for the spring session of our Foreign Policy Fellowship Program. The Wilson Center is a non-partisan think tank here in DC that was created by Congress in 1968 which focuses on foreign policy issues. Our Foreign Policy Fellowship Program is a six-week seminar series that takes place on Friday afternoons at the Center, and gives Fellows the opportunity to learn about and discuss foreign policy topics with some of the nation’s leading thinkers and practitioners. Fellows are also given the opportunity to work collaboratively together to address challenges, demonstrate the legislative branch’s role in foreign policy decision making, and provides a great forum to meet other staffers who are interested in these vital issues. The Spring 2016 Seminar Series are April 8th, April 15th, April 22nd, April 29th, May 6th and May 13th . If accepted, each fellow is required to attend at least five out of the six sessions, which run on Fridays from 2:30pm - 5:30pm. Interested congressional staffers from LC to Chief of Staff can apply at https://www.wilsoncenter.org/wilson-foreign-policy-fellowship-application, or you can find more information about the program here. Applicants need not work in foreign policy for their office, but should have an interest in this area of study.
