The Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Congressional Fellowship Program aims to educate Congressional staff on current events in the Eurasia region and engage staff with the Council’s latest research. The program connects Congressional fellows with our larger community, which includes leading experts on Ukraine, Russia, Central Asia, and the South Caucasus. Applications are due by January 15, 2020.


The Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Congressional Fellowship is a bi-partisan fellowship program that connects staff members from the US House and Senate with Atlantic Council senior fellows and leading experts on the Eurasia region. Through the eleven-month nonresidential and unpaid fellowship, staff members take part in a series of off-the-record roundtables approximately every other month led by experts to discuss critical issues connected to the region, including but not limited to:

  • US Foreign Policy in Eurasia
  • Energy Security
  • Frozen Conflicts
  • NATO
  • Russia’s Foreign Policy
  • Ukraine’s Reform Progress
  • Russian Influence Operations in the West
  • The Conflict in Ukraine’s East
  • Sanctions on Russia

The program also connects fellows with Atlantic Council experts for hearings, briefings, and background meetings. The fellowship includes a capstone study trip to Ukraine, where staff members have senior meetings with representatives from the Ukrainian government, opposition, civil society, and private sector.
