National Security Fellows Program

The Foundation for Defense of Democracies sponsors a National Security Fellows Program for up-and-coming members of the policy community, with the goal of exploring national security issues through a series of expert-moderated discussions. National Security Fellows enjoy mentorship opportunities with FDD senior fellows, distinguished members of FDD’s Board of Advisors, and select others in the policy community.

Discussions address issues of U.S. national security, including: homegrown terrorism, efforts to halt Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon, U.S. engagement in Afghanistan, and radical anti-American terrorist groups. Sessions are off-the-record, allowing participants to debate these issues in a safe space.

We are currently receiving applications for the 2014 - 2015 National Security Fellows Program. To apply for the program, please submit a) a one page cover letter outlining your interest in the program; b) a resume including your work history and educational background, and c) and a letter of nomination and support from an industry professional.  Submissions should be sent to Julia Schulman, Julia@defenddemocracy.org by Friday, December 5
