German Marshall Fund and Center for New American Security Video Competition

As part of their joint project “Engaging the New Generation of Transatlanticists,” The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) are now accepting applications from university students enrolled at US institutions to present their ideas for US-EU cooperation and their vision for the future of transatlantic relations.

GMF and CNAS invite students to send a three-minute (or shorter) video and 250-word written summary outlining a new and unique approach to key issues facing transatlantic partners. The video can focus on broad contours of the relationship or a specific area for transatlantic cooperation, including but not limited to: technology, defense and security, climate change, and threats to democracy. The five competition winners will be invited to join a funded study tour to Europe in July 2022 to meet with officials, experts, and key stakeholders in Brussels and other European capitals.

The deadline to apply for this opportunity is March 15, 2022, at 11:59 pm ET.
