In my voluntary role as Press Officer of the Young Professional in Foreign Policy Brussels branch, I am delighted to have overseen the creation and launch of an exciting new award celebrating a Rising Star in Foreign Policy 2017!
Honouring an individual based in Brussels who has achieved outstanding work in the field of foreign policy in the past year, this is a chance for someone to have their achievements celebrated in the Brussels bubble and win some fantastic prizes.
The winner of the award will receive a EUR 6,000 scholarship for training at the prestigious ISPD Protocol & Diplomacy and a Visionary membership at ISPD+ Innovation in Diplomacy network, a cash prize and an annual YPFP membership.
Entrants must submit an application explaining in no more than 500 words why they or the person they are nominating should be considered for the award. Applications must include personal details and supporting documentation (a maximum of 5 documents/ website links, where one must include a two-page CV), including a photo of the applicant.
Deadline is 17.00 on 6 November 2017. Nominees will be shortlisted and announced by 13 November, with the winner announced on 24 November 2017. Apply here.
I can’t wait to see who will be crowned the Rising Star in Foreign Policy 2017! A massive thank you to YPFP Brussels for allowing me to launch this.
