2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the American Council on Germany’s McCloy Fellowship program. Since its inception, nearly 1,100 Americans and Germans have had the opportunity to travel across the Atlantic to meet with their professional counterparts and to complete research on timely topics affecting the transatlantic partnership. For four decades, the McCloy Fellowships program have been an essential element of the ACG’s work. In 2016, the ACG is re-imagining the McCloy Fellowships with the goal of engaging a new generation of transatlanticists.
The McCloy Fellowships on Global Trends will seek to address the challenges being faced by countries in this rapidly changing world. With a focus on urbanization, climate change and sustainability, technological breakthroughs, and demographics and social change, fellows will have the opportunity to tackle the challenges of tomorrow today by conducting on-site research across the Atlantic for a minimum of 21 days.
Americans and Germans from nonprofits, think tanks, law, journalism, the public sector, and cultural organizations in relatively early stages of their careers are encouraged to apply for the McCloy Fellowships. Fellows receive a stipend to travel across the Atlantic to research issues that are critical to the German-American relationship in a complex interconnected global environment.
Applications are due by Wednesday, June 1, 2016. More information can be found here.
