James S. Denton Transatlantic Fellowship

James s. Denton


The program brings a select group of mid-level professionals from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) to Washington, DC for a three-week fellowship to engage and work with American governmental and non-­governmental institutions and experts on addressing major issues facing the transatlantic partnership. 

Participants also develop strategies and discuss follow-on opportunities for cooperation that will meaningfully strengthen the U.S-CEE relationship and counter mounting threats to the wider transatlantic partnership. 

The Transatlantic Fellows Program is funded by a generous grant from the National Endowment for Democracy.
