“It is always better to be sure that we cannot be harmed, than to assume that no one wants to harm us.” - Gyula Andrássy
The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA), together with The Hungary Initiatives Foundation (HIF), is pleased to announce the fifth call for applications for the Andrássy National Security Fellowship - a six-month fellowship program aimed at cultivating the next generation of Hungarian strategic thinkers committed to strengthening ties between Hungary and the United States.
The Fellowship was conceived in the spirit and legacy of Hungarian statesman Gyula Andrássy, who served as Prime Minister of Hungary (1867–1871) and Foreign Minister of Austria-Hungary. Alongside Bismarck, he was an architect of European order gifted, in the words of a contemporary, “with great perspicacity, large minded and liberal views, and the decision of character so necessary to be a ruler of men … ever governed by a feeling of justice and honour in the performance of his duty.”
During their time in Washington, Andrássy Fellows will work with CEPA’s team of experts and scholars to conduct independent research closely coordinated with one or more of CEPA’s analytical programs – Strategy and Statecraft, Strengthening Frontline Security, StratCom, and Bolstering Atlanticism. Fellows will have the opportunity to showcase their research findings via one or more means: CEPA podcasts, expert roundtable discussions, and/or written policy briefs. Andrássy Fellows will also participate in outreach to the U.S. expert community and will participate in and learn about the full spectrum of think tank processes including, writing and speaking for policy, networking in Washington, and program planning and execution. The Andrássy Fellowship provides a $3000 monthly stipend to cover living expenses in Washington, roundtrip air travel to Washington, DC, and assistance for the Fellow’s visa application process. The fellowship period is anticipated to run from September 2019 to February 2020.
