Brent Scowcroft Fellow- ASG

Expired Job

Aspen Institute Washington , DC 20319

Posted 3 months ago

The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues. The Institute has campuses in Aspen, Colorado, and on the Wye River on Marylands Eastern Shore. It also maintains offices in New York City and has an international network of partners.

The Aspen Strategy Group (ASG), a policy program of the Aspen Institute, is a nonpartisan forum in which preeminent experts and policymakers explore the most pressing foreign policy and national security challenges facing the United States. The Strategy Group convenes annually in Aspen, Colorado, as well as various international locations, to hold strategic discussions on issues that affect American interests at home and abroad.

The ASG launched the Brent Scowcroft Award Fellowship (BSAF), a paid internship program, in recognition of ASG Co-Chairman General Brent Scowcrofts dedication to the ASG over the years, as well as his legacy of distinguished public service. Now in its 13th year, the six-month fellowship is designed to provide the first stepping stone for recent graduates with a keen interest in foreign policy by way of direct exposure to the types of critical, thoughtful, and bipartisan discussions that characterize the ASGs dialogues.

This ASG fellowship is set in a collaborative, small-team, and fast-paced environment. As the team prepares for each meeting, the ASG entrusts its BSAF fellows with a high level of responsibility. Therefore, we seek candidates with the ability to work both efficiently as part of a team and independently to ensure the success of the ASGs various activities.

Please note that while the fellowship is temporary in nature, fellows are required to work full time.
