Global EPFP requires participation in monthly, two-hour online seminars from August, 2013 - March 2014, which are on Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. In addition, GEPFP Senior Fellows are expected to participate in the United Kingdom Study Tour, October 18-27, 2013 and a capstone convening in Washington, DC on April 26, 2014 to be held in conjunction with the annual EPFP Washington Policy Seminar. GEPFP Senior Fellows have the option of completing a policy analysis on some facet of U.S./U.K. policy. Applicants should consider these extra demands on their time in light of their current professional and personal schedule.
