AILA International Fellowship
AILA International Fellows
The AIF program brings together a diverse cohort of mid-career professionals in the corporate, nonprofit, military, and government arenas from across the U.S. and around the globe. Each year, a select group of approximately 24 Fellows leverage their diversity to address the intellectual, ethical, cultural, and policy questions that are central to effective leadership in today’s world. Each Fellow amplifies their professional skills and leadership potential in a collaborative, cross-sector, and multicultural atmosphere.
Since 2003, CSIS has welcomed over 210 AILA International Fellows from 49 countries, creating a vibrant and supportive network of alumni who continue to engage with one another on contemporary issues and leadership strategies.
CSIS draws from its network of world-class scholars and practitioners to create a wide-ranging, dynamic, and pragmatic approach to leadership, ethics, and global issues. The curriculum includes:
- Experiential leadership and team-building exercises
- Deep reflections on ethical approaches to global issues
- Workshops on effective communication and negotiation
- Briefings on global policy challenges and opportunities
- Case studies of real-world policy dilemmas
CSIS is seeking a diverse and accomplished cohort of mid-career leaders to co-create a vibrant learning experience. The selection committee will consider candidates’ professional background and leadership potential, as well as demonstrated interest in the four program pillars: global issues, leadership, ethics, and communication. Proficiency in English is obligatory, as the program requires active engagement in discussions and activities.
