How DCFR is supporting the Rocky Mountain Region

DCFR collaborates with like-minded public and nonprofit organizations in order to meet its outreach goals.  

The DCFR has a proud history of working with the American Council on Germany to bring insightful speakers to the Denver Metro area to discuss a wide range of topics, from American and European relations to technology and security issues and more.  Our partnership allows members from both organziations to engage subject matter experts and discuss                                                                                 transnational topics that extend across the Atlantic Ocean and the globe.  Find out more about                                                           the American Council on Germany at www.acgusa.org.

Since 1995, the Pacific Council has hosted exchanges on issues of international importance, convened experts and working groups to address pressing policy challenges, and built a network of globally-minded members across the West Coast and the world.  Today the Pacific                                                            Council's roster includes current and former diplomats, industry leaders, media                                                                                    representatives, politicians, and scholars.  Find out more about the Pacific Council on                                                                        International Policy at https://www.pacificcouncil.org/

     The Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver is consistently regarded           as one of the world's top global studies programs.  Many faculty members, current and former                     students, and visiting professors stay engaged with the DCFR.  Since it's inception, the DCFR has             had a close relationship with the University of Denver.  The DCFR gives DU faculty and students a             platform to disseminate Academic research and the two organizations work towards a common goal           of nurturing leaders of the future.


DCFR, on behalf of a generous donor, provides two full-paid member Fellowships to rising scholars from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. Both fellows are selected through a competitive process and drawn from the ranks of graduate students.

The 2016 - 2017 Fellowship recipients are Arianit Spanca, The Earl O. Hogue Fellowship for Leadership, and Jakob Scheidt, The Paul Viotti Fellowship for Scholarship.


Every year DCFR provides an internship opportunity to a university student.  The student works to assist the DCFR in our mission and gets hands on experience working with a non profit organization.
