Ideas/Inspiration: The Marshall Memorial Fellowship of the German Marshall Fund of the United States seeks nominations. What is the German Marshall Fund? The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is a nonpartisan American public policy and grantmaking institution dedicated to promoting better understanding and cooperation between North America and Europe on transatlantic and global issues. What is the Marshall Memorial Fellowship? Founded in 1982, the Marshall Memorial Fellowship (MMF) was created by the German Marshall Fund of the United States to introduce a new generation of European leaders to America's institutions, politics, and people. In 1999, GMF launched a companion program to expose future U.S. leaders to a changing and expanding Europe. Through formal and informal meetings with a range of policymakers, the Marshall Memorial Fellowship (MMF) provides a unique opportunity for emerging leaders from the United States and Europe to engage with counterparts across the Atlantic in five cities. GMF awards over 100 Fellowships each year to the best and brightest from all professional sectors, including politics, media, business, and nongovernmental organizations. The MMF program features a network of over 2,000 alumni who remain engaged through annual conferences, regional meetings, online communications, and involvement in other GMF program areas.

Beginning with the four original countries - Denmark, France, Germany, and the Netherlands - Fellows now come from across the United States and from 37 European countries. GMF works closely with partners in more than 50 cities on both sides of the Atlantic to make the MMF program possible.
