Eurasia Foundation (EF) invites emerging Eurasia specialists to apply for the 2020-2021 Young Professionals Network (YPN) fellowship. The Network was created to honor EF’s late chair, Sarah Carey, who was an indispensable advisor to young people interested in the Eurasia region. The YPN program identifies young professionals who share EF’s commitment to international engagement across the region and connects them with more established professionals from a variety of fields. Over the course of nine months, YPN provides opportunities for young people in Washington, DC to discuss developments in the Eurasia region with key decision-makers, diplomats, journalists and analysts.
EF Young Professionals attend and participate in events with influential diplomats, scholars, and journalists up to twice per month between September 2020 and May 2021. All events will take place in Washington, DC at varied times after 5:00 PM. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all events will be conducted in a virtual format until further notice.
Requirements & Expectations
Young professionals between the ages of 22 and 33 with a deep interest in the Eurasia region, who are working in government, media, the military, or the private or nonprofit sectors may apply. Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree and a demonstrable commitment to the Eurasia region. Selected participants will be expected to attend most program events, some of which will be scheduled during the workday to accommodate speakers’ schedules.
