Fellows (Class of 2020)

Each year, Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP) welcomes a new class of Fellows. Through a highly selective process, Fellows are selected for their expertise and passion for their field, as well as for their ability and desire to deepen their knowledge and share it with a wider community. Fellows publish regularly on the topic of their Fellowship in major online media outlets and participate in a range of professional development programs.
