The Center for European Policy Analysis, in collaboration with the Hungary Initiative Foundation, is currently accepting applications from qualified applications seeking for the Andrássy National Security Fellowship to begin in June 2017. The fellowship is a fully-funded six-month program aimed at developing Hungarian expertise on the United States and building long-term ties with the U.S. policy community through hands-on experience and analytical training in transatlantic policy issues.

Originally founded to honor the legacy of Hungarian statesman Gyula Andrássy, who served as Prime Minister of Hungary (1867–1871) and Foreign Minister of Austria-Hungary, during their time in Washington, DC, Andrássy Fellows will be paired with a specific CEPA program – Strategy and Statecraft, StratCom, Defense, or Energy Security – that matches their interest. Each Fellow will work with a designated CEPA scholar and will conduct independent research.

Andrássy Fellows also participate in outreach to the U.S. policy community and produce high-quality policy analysis. The Andrássy Fellowship will feature an expert roundtable event hosted by CEPA and the publication of an analytical paper showcasing the Fellows’ work. Fellows will also work with core CEPA staff on a full spectrum of think tank processes, including, policy issue briefings, brainstorming sessions, networking, and program planning and administration. CEPA will provide a $3,000 monthly stipend, cover the costs of travel to Washington, DC., and provide assistance for the Fellow’s visa application process.
