Transatlantic Fellowship and Study Trip for Young Professionals and Students

 

Atlantic Expedition – Modernizing Transatlantic Relations is an Atlantische Initiative fellowship and exchange program. By assembling a diverse team of leaders of tomorrow, the fellowship aims to reform and reinvigorate the transatlantic partnership, ensuring that it better reflects the evolving priorities of modern society.

Fellows have the opportunity to publish their policy ideas, meet with decision-makers and opinion leaders, network and collaborate with their peers, and travel together to the United States and Germany.

Participants in this program don’t have to be experts in German-American relations! We consider fresh perspectives and new ideas as crucial to reversing the trend of declining enthusiasm for the partnership. Transatlantic matters affect everyone, and ought therefore to be discussed by everyone.

The fellowship is open to US and German citizens between 20 and 35 years of age. Applicants need only submit a short article (max 1000 words), a one-page CV and a very brief statement of motivation.The deadline is June 18, 2017. Please find more information in our Call for Applications.

30 fellows will be selected to network, debate and collaborate with their peers and political decision-makers, opinion-leaders and stakeholders from a variety of business sectors and interest groups in Chicago and Houston in October 2017. The fellows will co-author an Atlantic Action Plan, drawing upon their diverse range of skills, interests and experiences. The 15 best fellows will be invited to present the Action Plan during a five-day basecamp in Berlin in spring 2018.

Fellow Opportunities for Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Summer of Defiance

Displaying

Planned Parenthood Generation Action, a project of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, in partnership with Change Corps are proud to launch the Summer of Defiance.

In the last six months, we have seen young people across the nation stand up and speak out.​ As ​young people of color,​ ​we​ know what’s at stake, and we are not going to let our country go backwards — not now, not ever. As the onslaught of attacks on reproductive health continue, it is more important than ever to amplify and strengthen the collective voices of people of color and  LGBTQ+ to ensure reproductive justice. This summer will lay a critical foundation for national and local advocacy efforts. Planned Parenthood Generation Action’s Summer of Defiance fellows will gain crucial experience in the political and nonprofit fields and receive extensive training experienced organizers. You’ll learn and use grassroots organizing skills that create a movement for real social change with hands-on experience in community outreach and education; volunteer recruitment, management and training; event management; story collection; voter registration; and data management.

Past fellows have used these skills to work for political campaigns and well-respected, progressive nonprofit organizations across the state and country.
