The Marshall Memorial Fellowship (MMF) is GMF’s flagship leadership development program. Created in 1982 to introduce a new generation of European leaders to the United States, it now prepares leaders from both sides of the Atlantic for transatlantic relations. The program relies on 6 months of distance learning and 24 days of first-hand experience to facilitate knowledge and network development for effective transatlantic engagement. GMF awards 75 Marshall Memorial Fellowships each year to candidates from all sectors, including business, government and civil society. The MMF alumni network numbers more than 2,500 leaders. Their transatlantic engagement continues throughout their careers with GMF alumni projects, seminars, and major events.

Candidates should not ask for a letter of recommendation from a family member, and applicants should not submit letters of recommendation for other applicants. If a candidate meets the eligibility factors but does not have a nominator, the candidate may instead submit the application form and check the self-nomination box.
All interviews take about 20 minutes and are conducted in person and in English. Interview dates and locations will be provided to applicants as early as possible, and candidates are expected to hold this date and make themselves available for interviews. Candidates are responsible for the costs of travel and lodging for the interview. In special circumstances, a travel stipend can be granted.
In addition to the briefings and travel, fellows are required to schedule individual appointments with a local leader in most of the communities they will visit. This task involves research and outreach over the course of the three months leading up to the transatlantic exchange.
During the program, fellows will represent GMF and are expected to conduct themselves in a manner reflective of this special relationship. Fellows are expected to attend and fulfill all activities during preparations and to participate fully in all 24 days of transatlantic exchange; no late arrivals or early departures will be accommodated. Fellowships can be withdrawn if full participation is not met.
