About the Fellowship

Fellows in this program participate in substantial, policy-based and administrative work in the office of a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) or a Brussels-based NGO four days a week. Fellows will also spend one day a week attending a curated selection of seminars, lectures and site visits led by leading policy experts and practitioners who will introduce them to a variety of topics concerning contemporary politics in Europe. These lectures and site visits also help Fellows expand their professional networks and build important workplace skills.
