Fellowship program created by the CIA-close German Marshall Fund, mostly of powerful mid-level operatives

Not to be confused with a Marshall Scholarship.

The German Marshall Fund of the United States, one of the most important CIA front organizations, awards 75 Marshall Memorial Fellowships each year to candidates from all sectors, including business, government and civil society.

Most of the Fellows are mid-level people, meaning that most of them don't have an entry in Wikispooks yet. But the positions they hold are powerful, and the Agency-close GMF has created an extensive cadre of journalists, NGOs, academics, politicians and others. It operatives in European and US state and city level politics and administration is particularly noticeable.

The MMF alumni network numbers more than 2,500 leaders. Their transatlantic engagement continues throughout their careers with GMF alumni projects, seminars, and major events.[1]

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Green politician Annalena Baerbock (2011) and Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini (2007) have both gone through the program[2][3][4][5].

Mogherini mentioned the great value of her participation in GMF’s Marshall Memorial Fellowship Program in 2007 as an important part of her career and for her personal experience.[6]

Program Layout

The program relies on 6 months of distance learning and 24 days of first-hand experience to facilitate knowledge and network development for effective transatlantic engagement. [1]

The exchange program begins in Washington, DC, where all the fellows meet to learn about the similarities and differences between Europe and the United States. Each fellow then visits a total of five communities across the Atlantic and benefits from more than 100 engagements with prominent policymakers, opinion leaders, and decision-makers, as well as leaders of change.[1]

The majority of the program consists of a group experience, but time is set aside in each community for fellows to conduct their individual appointments. Regular debriefs provide an opportunity for fellows to reflect on their experience together and identify opportunities for transfers of knowledge and best practice.[1]

At the end of the exchange, each fellow submits an opinion piece or a photo essay on a shared transatlantic concern or professional leadership takeaway. A select few are then published on the GMF website. The program concludes with a final program debrief that takes place one month after the exchange program, after which lifelong engagement with GMF continues.[1]


There are only membership lists for a few years. The alumni are are gathered from miscellaneous sources mostly search engines and Wikipedia. [7][8][9]
