Description: The fellowships allow American and German experts from journalism, the public sector, think tanks, nonprofits, law, and cultural organizations to research and assess the most pressing topics on the transatlantic agenda while engaging with their counterparts overseas.

Applicants should present a project proposal of three to five pages detailing their plans, including the background, scope of the research, and how it addresses tomorrow’s topics today, the general sources and institutions with whom they would like to consult, and the relevance for the transatlantic relationship.
