Academy of Young Diplomats – Apply by June 30

On behalf of the European Academy of Diplomacy in Warsaw, it is my great pleasure to bring to your attention our flagship program, the Academy of Young Diplomats, addressed to young leaders who wish to pursue a career in international environment.

The 14th edition of the European Academy of Diplomacy allows participants to polish practical skills thus complementing their formal education. It allows to expand their network of professional and personal contacts and, since the group are highly international, it also promotes Poland. By inviting participants to Warsaw and Cracow it builds on efforts of Polish communities abroad aiming at sustaining and strengthening ties with the Homeland and Polish language.

The participants can choose one of three specializations: International Organization (held in English), International Security (held in English) and Polish Foreign Service (held in Polish).

Every year the Academy receives excellent applications from young leaders of Polish descent, that is why I allow myself to kindly request your assistance in reaching out to the Polish communities abroad and spreading the information attached to this email via your networks or recommending participants who would be interested in joining us for the 14th edition. The application deadline is 30 June 2017. Candidates fulfilling the criteria can apply for scholarships (scholarship application deadline: 31 May 2017). Detailed information and application can be found here:
