Council of Foreign Affairs International Fellowship in Canada
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has launched the second year of its International Affairs Fellowship in Canada. The Fellowship seeks to strengthen mutual understanding and cooperation between rising generations of leaders and thinkers in the United States and Canada. The program will provide for one to two mid-career U.S. citizens per year to spend six to twelve months hosted by a Canadian institution to deepen their knowledge of Canada. This is a great opportunity to grow the pool of Canada-US experts in the US; help foster new Canada-US networks; leverage new influencers; and engage emergent players in areas of strategic interest to the Canada-US relationship. Fellows can be drawn from a broad source of fields, including business, academia, government, media, NGOs, and think tanks. Interested candidates can apply online until October 31 2017.
