Developing a Voice as a Foreign Policy Expert
A core component of the Fellowship is building a portfolio of published work, which takes the form of op-eds, interviews, and book reviews. Before publication, all articles undergo an extensive process of revisions that is designed to help the Fellows’ craft accessible, effective, and concise arguments. With the support of the Fellowship Editors, Fellows develop an engaging voice and improve their analytic skills. These skills will allow their ideas to influence foreign policy discussions over the course of their careers.
Learning to Apply Expertise
Fellows also benefit from a variety of exclusive opportunities and programming designed specifically for their benefit. The Program brings in speakers, and provides mentorship and professional development opportunities. Additionally, other groups within the broader YPFP community will turn to the Fellows for expertise and advice when designing relevant programming. The Fellowship class is a community, with regular happy hours and other socials. Graduating Fellows join a growing alumni community and go on to leverage their portfolio of published work and fellowship experiences in their careers.
