Only ten days left to apply for the 2017 Millennium Fellowship! The Atlantic Council is continuing to recruit rising leaders before the deadline on Sunday, March 12. We are seeking leaders who bring an entrepreneurial spirit, unique vision for the future, character to lead and inspire, and passion for shaping the world to the fellowship.
This two-year program brings together rising leaders thirty-five years old and under from around the world who share the Council's mission for building a peaceful, free, and prosperous future. Through the program, fellows will:
- Join a global network of exceptional peers,
- Meet with world leaders and senior experts at high-profile international events,
- Go behind the headlines to discover issues at the cutting-edge of global trends, and
- Lead the debate through opportunities to speak, publish, and collaborate.
Each year the fellowship explores a range of themes in foreign policy, international security, technology, global business, and energy. In 2017, Millennium Fellows will travel to Washington, DC for a major next generation conference on Climate Change and the Global Energy Transition, along with a leadership retreat and master class sessions with senior experts. Past programs have met with heads of state, best-selling authors, senior military leaders, top entrepreneurs, and prominent democracy and rights activists.
Fellows will also join a second trip in 2017-2018 that explores different topics, choosing from flagship Atlantic Council events around the world, such as recently held conferences in New York, Wroclaw, Abu Dhabi, and Istanbul (the 2017-2018 conferences will be announced later this year). All fellows will meet a third time at the fellowship's main event in 2018.
