“It is always better to be sure that we cannot be harmed,
than to assume that no one wants to harm us.”

   – Gyula Andrássy


The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA), together with The Hungary Initiatives Foundation (HIF), is now accepting applications for the Andrássy National Security Fellowship - asix-month fellowship program aimed at cultivating the next generation of Hungarian strategic thinkers committed to strengthening ties between Hungary and the United States.

During their time in Washington, Andrássy Fellows will be paired with a specific CEPA program – Strategy and Statecraft, Strengthening Frontline Security, StratCom and Bolstering Atlanticism. 

Fellows will have the opportunity to showcase their research findings via podcasts, expert roundtable discussions, and written policy briefs. Andrássy Fellows will participate in outreach to the U.S. policy and expert communities.

Fellows will also work with core CEPA staff on a full spectrum of think tank processes including, policy briefings, brainstorming sessions, networking, and program planning and administration. CEPA will provide a $3000 monthly stipend, cover roundtrip travel to Washington, D.C., and provide assistance for the Fellow’s visa application process. 

Deadline approaching!
Apply by March 10

This fellowship period will run from May to October 2019.


The Fellowship was conceived in the spirit and legacy of Hungarian statesman Gyula Andrássywho served as Prime Minister of Hungary (1867–1871) and Foreign Minister of Austria-Hungary. Alongside Bismarck, he was an architect of European order gifted, in the words of a contemporary, “with great perspicacity, large minded and liberal views, and the decision of character so necessary to be a ruler of men … ever governed by a feeling of justice and honour in the performance of his duty.”

  • Young professionals holding Hungarian citizenship with at least four years of relevant work experience, or post-graduate scholars with at least 2 years of focused research;
  • Outstanding academic credentials and English language skills;
