Urban and Regional Policy Fellowship Program
2013 Call for Pre-Applications
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) grants a limited number of fellowships each year through its Urban and Regional Policy program, which focuses on the policy issues and challenges common to metropolitan regions and cities in the United States and Europe. Urban and Regional Policy Fellowships provide opportunities for practitioners at the urban and regional levels to meet with their counterparts across the Atlantic and examine policies that have been successfully implemented to address similar needs. Fellows can choose to travel for short-term (3-4 weeks) or long-term (3 months) research periods, with the goal of returning to their work equipped with the ideas and insights necessary to effect significant and lasting change in their own communities. For 2013, the fellowship travel period is between June 2013 and May 2014.
Who Should Apply
GMF welcomes pre-applications from mid-career policymakers or practitioners in state/local government, leaders from the private sector, or representatives of non-profit and policy organizations with a strong record of project completion. The fellowship is not intended for academic research. GMF welcomes fellowship proposals that cover a wide array of topics, including but not limited to urban sustainability, transportation, environmental policy, and education and workforce development.
