Summer Enrichment Series

For Students and Recent Graduates

In Summer 2022, the Bertelsmann Foundation will host its first annual Summer Enrichment Series. During the months of June, July, and August, selected students and recent graduates will be invited to attend a complementary, in-person dinner each month at its office in Washington, DC. Each event will provide a three-course dinner and an interactive roundtable conversation on all aspects of the transatlantic relationship. Distinguished guest speakers including members of the diplomatic community and EU policy experts will share their perspectives on the most pressing challenges facing the transatlantic relationship. Students and recent graduates will have the opportunity to network and engage in fruitful discussions with members of the transatlantic community and learn about ongoing projects at the Bertelsmann Foundation. We encourage those that are interested to submit their completed questionnaire (linked below) by May 15, 2022. All participants will receive a certificate of completion.

  • June 22, 2022- Transatlantic Partnership (Security & Defense)

  • July 13, 2022- Bilateral Relationships (Germany & France as allies of the U.S.)

  • August 3, 2022- EU & U.S. Alliance (Strategic Cooperation)

Please note that all participants must be located in the DC area during the summer months of 2022, fully vaccinated, and be 21 years old by June 22, 2022. Please see the questionnaire below to apply.
