I’m signing off for one month while traveling in Europe as a 2012 Marshall Memorial Fellow. I’ll be visiting Brussels, Stockholm, Rome, Sarajevo, and Berlin to learn more about energy, science, politics, and culture beyond our borders.
The Marshall Memorial Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for emerging leaders from the United States and Europe to explore institutions, politics, and culture on the other side of the Atlantic. American and European Fellows each visit five cities during the 24-day program. They meet formally and informally with a range of policymakers, prominent community members, and local MMF alumni. During the trip, each Fellow also has the opportunity to explore his or her individual professional interests beyond the group programs, which focus on a range of domestic and international policy areas.
