2012 MNP Fellows announced

I’m sure we’ll all remember with nostalgia the excitement when the list of all fellows for our programme went live, so we could get our first impression of the people with whom we would be spending those incredible months. The 2012 list has now been published and there are a number of Europeans among them:

You can find their details and those of all 2012 MNP Fellows on the Eisenhower website.

We wish them all the best for what will undoubtedly be an amazing experience, and hope that they will stay in touch with other European fellows on their return.
