EVENTS: German Marshall Fund Meeting

The German Marshall Fund is a non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting transatlantic cooperation. GMF does this through a number of programs, including, the Marshall Memorial Fellowship (MMF) which is the flagship leadership development program. Created in 1982 to introduce a new generation of European leaders to the United States, MMF grew in 1999 with a companion program that began sending emerging leaders from the United States to Europe. Today, the MMF alumni network numbers nearly 2,500 leaders.

GMF awards around 75 Marshall Memorial Fellowships each year to the best and brightest from all sectors, including business, government, and civil society from both sides of the Atlantic. Selected fellows engage in 6 months of preparation designed to enhance their understanding of transatlantic relations before embarking on 24 days of policy immersion across the Atlantic.

This year, 5 American Marshall Memorial Fellows (AMMF) will travel to Bucharest from March 29 to April 3 to learn about Romania’s current state of affairs and its involvement in transatlantic dialogues through a series of meetings. As part of their program the will have the pleasure to be hosted by the American Studies Program on April 1st, from 4:30-6pm, in Room 4--the American Studies Library, in a conversation with students about the “Generation Z” in Romania, were they stand , what beliefs and aspiration they share as well as how they position themselves in the transatlantic space as they come of age.
