Established in 1977 in memory of Harold Rosenthal, a Congressional staffer and victim of international terrorism while on official duty, the Program has hosted 181 Fellows to date. Run in association with APSIA, the Rosenthal Fellowship receives support from a number of individual donors as well as the Robertson Foundation for Government, the Rotary Foundation and, previously, from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Fellows are current graduate students in international affairs nominated by their schools and are both US citizens and foreign nationals. Former Senator and Vice President, Fritz Mondale, serves as honorary chairman of the Fellowship.
The Rosenthal Fellowship provides graduate students in international affairs the opportunity to spend a summer in Washington, DC working on foreign affairs issues at a U.S. federal government agency or department . Click to learn more about the fellowship and application process.
