On behalf of the Atlantic Council Atlantic Forum is proud to promote the 2021 class of the Millennium Fellowship. The fellowship is open to young leaders (ages 25-35) from every country and all sectors.


The Millennium Fellowship is the Atlantic Council’s flagship initiative for future leaders. The fellowship is a two-year, part-time program requiring three weeks of in-person activities supplemented with virtual convenings and distance learning, executive coaching, and optional events that take place around the world and throughout the year. As part of this, fellows participate in two leadership retreats and seminars each lasting one-week, as well as one “study tour” to the front lines of a global issue.

The Millennium Fellowship is a transformative experience that blends the Atlantic Council’s expertise, networks, and convening power around global issues with world-class leadership development resources from the private sector and academia. Our 12-month “core” program is a part-time commitment including three weeks of required in-person events supplemented by virtual training, individual executive coaching, and bespoke community management and collaboration opportunities.

The primary events include two leadership retreats, each lasting one week at the beginning and end of the program, as well as our annual study tour where fellows travel with a small cohort led by a senior expert to explore global challenges up close.

Recent tours include Turkey and Greece at the height of the Syrian Refugee crisis, Colombia after the FARC peace deal, and Ukraine after the revolution of dignity. Beyond this, fellows also have access to a menu of optional events which take place around the world and throughout the year, including flagship conferences and galas from the Atlantic Council and our partners such as the NATO Summit, Concordia Summit, and Abu Dhabi Global Energy Forum, among others.

Join us in shaping a more secure future together. Apply here before March 31 2020!
