The Penn Kemble Forum at the National Endowment for Democracy is an opportunity for rising foreign policy professionals to share ideas across sectors and explore the role of democracy and human rights within a broader policy and strategic context. Drawing on the expertise of foreign policy practitioners, activists, and academic experts, the Forum convenes monthly for bipartisan dinner discussions on key national security and foreign policy issues. 
Organized and sponsored by the Endowment, the Forum has provided fellows with the opportunity to:
  • Draw on the insights of prominent diplomats, like U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad, as well as the experience of leading dissidents from Russia and North Korea. 
  • Engage leading intellectuals, including the Washington Post’s Anne Applebaum and Stanford University’s Francis Fukuyama, on issues ranging from disinformation to identity politics.
  • Participate in skills-based sessions (e.g., how to write/place an op-ed) and a private forum with the Holocaust Museum’s genocide prevention and anti-Semitism programs;
  • Learn about the domestic and foreign policy-making process from former White House Chief of Staff Andy Card (NED’s Board Chairman).
  • Network with other emerging foreign policy/national security professionals in Happy Hour and social events.

The Forum will run from September 2019 to June 2020. Applicants should be professionals with between 5-10 years of working experience on national security and foreign policy-related issues. The Forum encourages applications from within government, think tanks, and the non-profit community, as well as Capitol Hill staff, journalists covering international affairs, and the private sector. 

The program is unpaid and nonresidential. Successful applicants are expected to consistently attend the monthly seminars, held after working hours. Additional non-mandatory events will also be scheduled.

The program is focused on democracy and human rights aspects of foreign and national security policy and is oriented toward individuals with less specific experience in these fields. To ensure regular participation, applicants must be based in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
