The Center for a New American Security is inviting a bipartisan group of 20-25 emerging national security leaders to participate in the Shawn Brimley Next Generation National Security Leaders Fellowship.
Donor Name: Center for a New American Security (CNAS)
State: All States
County: All Counties
Type of Grant: Fellowship
Duration: 1 year
This year-long, part-time professional development fellowship aims to bring together young professionals across sectors within the national security field to learn best practices and lessons in leadership. NextGen Fellows will have the opportunity to engage with thought leaders on leadership principles and national security challenges through various engagements, including a dinner series.
The program culminates in a week-long international study tour to delve deeper into national security issues and leadership. There is no cost to participate in the program, though individuals are responsible for the cost of travel to CNAS for dinners and events. Program dinners will have a dial-in option, but it is highly recommended that fellows attend in person. Please note: NextGen programming will operate in hybrid model to allow for participant flexibility.
The fellowship begins in January and ends in December. NextGen sessions are usually held 5-6 times per fellowship year, in the evenings; these sessions are hybrid, with both an in-person and virtual option available. There is no required number of mandatory sessions, but attending is highly encouraged to make the most of this fellowship.
To be eligible for the program, applicants must:
- Be a United States citizen
- Be between 27 and 35 years old, as of the close of application date
- Have at least four years of professional experience in researching or executing U.S. national security policy
- Demonstrate a commitment to public service
