The World Affairs Council believes that solutions to the world’s most challenging problems are found when the private, philanthropic, and public sectors work together. Every day, we convene thought leaders, change makers, and engaged citizens to share ideas, learn from each other, and effect change. Connecting people in this way leads to informed thinking, conversation, and actions that transcend traditional boundaries and lead to lasting solutions to global problems.

The World Affairs Council Veteran Fellowship program seeks to engage post 9.11 veterans in discussions on issues of global importance. The goal is to enrich our conversations on current world topics to include the unique perspective and life experience held by veterans. World Affairs values new voices that can be shared with our intellectually curious and globally-minded audience.


  • Complimentary access to WorldAffairs 2016: One full day of stimulating dialogue on the state of the world and where we are headed. Hear from some of the brightest and perceptive experts in the fields of policy, business, philanthropy, development and the environment. Gain new perspectives and fresh insights.

  • Opportunity to engage with 300+ globally minded and intellectually curious attendees: Our annual conference has developed a loyal audience base of informed leaders and citizens (70% are returning participants) who come to the multi-day event year after year. More than 40 World Affairs Council past and present trustees attend the one and a half-day conference.

  • Complimentary World Affairs Council membership: The World Affairs Council will provide a one-year complimentary membership to all 2016 Veteran Fellows.
