On January 24 at the U.S. Department of State, CIPE, Atlas Corps, and the Office of the U.S. Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan co-hosted a welcome event for the new class of Atlas Corps Fellows including five participants of the CIPE-Atlas Corps Think Tank LINKS Fellowship.
As mentioned in a previous post, this year’s Think Tank LINKS fellows represent various regions around the world and either come from leading think tanks back in their home countries or will be serving at top-tier organizations in Washington, DC.
CIPE and Atlas Corps are welcoming our second class of the Think Tank LINKS Fellows! Five young researchers from around the world have come together in Washington, DC to participate in a six month leadership development program. The fellows will shadow researchers and experts at leading Washington, DC-based think tanks to learn best practices of successful U.S. think tanks while conducting research on issues of democratic or economic reform.
We’re excited to introduce our newest class of Think Tank LINKS Fellows to everyone!
What will you be doing next Tuesday?
CIPE is partnering with #GivingTuesday to celebrate a day of philanthropy on December 3.
After enjoying some delicious food on Thanksgiving, and shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, why not join a global movement to give back to the community?
On Tuesday December 3rd, join the movement by supporting CIPE’s efforts to develop young leaders from around the world. Through our ChamberL.I.N.K.S. program and the Think Tank LINKS Fellowship, CIPE empowers youth to become active leaders in civil society and work toward meaningful change in their communities.
Watch videos for both programs and learn more about how to support here: http://www.cipe.org/givingtuesday/
Your donation (whether that’s $20 or $100) will help make a difference! By investing, you are developing young people’s skills to become future champions of change!
As the nation’s capital celebrated the second inauguration of President Obama this past weekend, CIPE and Atlas Corps also had our own celebration: welcoming the first class of Think Tank LINKS Fellows.
From now until early July, three young researchers will participate in the CIPE-Atlas Corps sponsored Think Tank LINKS Fellowship. A leadership development program, the three fellows will shadow researches and experts at leading Washington, DC-based think tanks to learn about how successful think tanks operate in the U.S. while conducting research in issues of democratic or economic reforms.
We are excited to introduce our first group of Think Tank LINKS Fellows to everyone!
