On September 14, 2017, the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES) commemorated the 50th anniversary of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellowship. Over the past five decades, the Fellowship has nurtured the development of leading social scientists from Germany and stimulated an enduring exchange of ideas and friendships across the Atlantic and disciplines. Over a third of the Fellowship's alumni gathered at CES to celebrate.
50th Anniversary of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellowship
The John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellowship was established at a timely moment for German academia and German-American relations, and undoubtedly contributed to furthering the cause of transatlanticism.
Since 1967, CES has welcomed 120 John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellows for ten-month stays at Harvard and nearly 50 John F. Kennedy Memorial Policy Fellows for short stays.
