Are you passionate about effecting change and building inclusive communities through public policy and/or civic engagement? Do you have an open mind and a commitment to gaining new perspectives, including from individuals with diverse backgrounds? Are you interested in learning more about inclusive transatlantic relations? Then apply to join the 2024 Marshall Memorial Fellowship, a program by the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF).

Launched 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. This year-long fellowship provides individuals with opportunities to build their competence in transatlantic relations, leadership, and community building through virtual and in-person meetings, travel, peer learning, and networking.

GMF awards 75 Marshall Memorial Fellowships each year to candidates from all sectors, including business, government, and civil society. Once the fellowship is completed, you will join the GMF network of around 4,000 alumni—and your transatlantic engagement in your professional and personal journey will continue with engagement in GMF’s activities.

Who is this fellowship for?

  • Individuals in Europe and the United States who aspire to maintain democracy and those who hold a position of influence in their personal, community, or professional life.
  • People passionate about using civic engagement or public policy to build inclusive communities in which diversity is valued and individuals are respected, have full access to resources, are treated equitably, stand up to discrimination, and are engaged in the decision-making processes that affect their lives.
  • Applicants from Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, North Macedonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Türkiye, United Kingdom, Ukraine, and the United States.

GMF actively encourages applicants from communities that historically have been less visible in transatlantic relations and public policy. We especially welcome applicants from historically underrepresented groups including but not limited to people of color, people with disabilities (visible or invisible), those who identify as LGBTQ+, people from low-income backgrounds, and those from ethnically diverse and migrant backgrounds. We also welcome diverse thought leadership that is conducive and productive to the mission and values of GMF.
