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.

Masters of Jurisprudence (M.J.) Program in Intellectual Property, Information & Communications Law

This Thursday afternoon, April 20, the College of Law at Michigan State University is hosting a program on our Masters of Jurisprudence (M.J.) program in Intellectual Property, Information & Communications Law. This degree program is specifically for students without a first degree in law.

This one-year degree is intended for students in the sciences, communications, packaging and the arts to learn about patent, trademark, and copyright law, as well as legal research and writing. It’s a great complement to a degree in those fields, or for students in a range of other fields, like business or international relations.

Tuition is reduced for this program to make it more affordable for the students, with the entire degree (24 credits) priced at approximately $16,000.

The Intellectual Property, Information & Communications Law program is ranked in the Top 20 nationally. You can learn more about it here and here.

All students who apply will receive fee waivers (worth $100). They are still accepting applications for Fall 2017 admission.

China Enterprise Programme Applications Open

The China Enterprise Programme offers a rare opportunity for students to gain an overview of China’s political landscape. Students will engage in debates and discussions about China’s economic reforms, policy experimentation, stability maintenance strategies as well as China’s relationship with the US, South China Sea, and across continental Africa.

Students will take tailored Mandarin classes every morning and will undergo a business challenge, an immersive experience that has been extremely rewarding for young entrepreneurs as well as those students looking to launch their career in the professional services industry.

During this summer programme, we will visit both local Chinese firms and MNCs based in Shanghai. Students will have opportunities to ask in-depth questions about market entry strategies, key policy-related challenges, and personal career development.

One of the highlights for last year’s students was the visit to Hangzhou, an ancient historical Chinese city, for a weekend away and an opportunity to explore the rest of China. Overall, the programme offers many opportunities for students to interact and network with professionals, expats and Chinese entrepreneurs.

The China Enterprise Summer Programme 2016 received overwhelmingly positive feedback, and we are looking to diversify student representation this year. This is a great summer filler for students to enhance their global perspectives and place their academic understanding of comparative politics, literature and culture into the context of China.

We are looking for students studying international studies, economics and political science at the University of Michigan, especially those who are particularly interested in modern Chinese culture, Chinese economic policies and China’s role in the contemporary international system.
