The Fellowship

The fellowship is awarded annually to two mid-career Foreign Service Officers who have demonstrated the commitment and creativity to become leaders in the field of public diplomacy.  The fellows will have opportunities for professional development training at the University of Southern California's Center for Public Diplomacy.  They will also participate in monthly mentoring sessions with members of the Council of American Ambassadors, the Public Diplomacy Council, and other public affairs specialists.  Finally, they will each write an article to be published in an upcoming issue of The American Ambassadors Review.  The purposed of the fellowship is to enhance the conduct and practice of U.S. public diplomacy through specialized training and mentoring opportunities for outstanding FSOs who are dedicated to the this mission.
