NDC Eisenhower Defence Fellowship ProgrammeNamed after the College’s founder, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, he programme began in 2015; each year the NDC Research Division selects - on a competitive basis - three NDC Eisenhower Defence Fellows: 1 Senior Eisenhower Defence Fellow (for 4 months) and 2 Eisenhower Defence Fellows (3 months each). Each fellow receives a stipend to cover his/her travel and living expenses while conducting research at the NDC (please refer to the Terms and Conditions explaining the differences between Fellowships).
Applicants are invited to submit proposals reflecting the priorities and challenges for the Alliance as outlined in the 2010 Strategic Concept and the 2016 Warsaw Summit Declaration, by completing and forwarding the Application Form to the NDC Research Division. While not excluding other areas of research, in 2018 preference will be given to those proposals addressing the following topics: Russia, security and defence challenges on the Eastern and Southern Flanks of the Alliance, and relations with strategic Partners. The full Terms and Conditions of the fellowship, as well as the Application Form, can be downloaded from this webpage.
Selection ProcedureThe NDC Research Fellowship Selection Committee meets in October/November each year, to review all the applications received. A staff member of NDC Research Division may contact prospective candidates for further clarification of their applications before that date, but applicants should be aware that a final decision on their application will be made only when the Committee concludes the selection process (by 30 November). The Committee may select up to three candidates from NATO countries. Selected candidates will be notified in writing immediately thereafter and they will receive the latest version of the NDC Fellows' Manual to prepare themselves for their stay at the College in Rome. Due to the large number of applicants, only candidates selected for the Fellowships will be contacted.
NOTE: Research proposals unrelated to NATO will not be taken into consideration.
The deadline for all applications is 1 September 2017.
