Wonk Tank is a pitch competition for university students across the United States to showcase their ability to be America’s next great “foreign policy wonk.” (A wonk is an individual who has a keen interest in and aptitude for the details of public policy.)
Recognizing the growing role young people are playing in shaping the global agenda, the U.S. Department of State launched Wonk Tank in 2015 as part of the the existing Diplomacy Lab programme aimed at fostering the next generation of foreign policy leaders.
Applications for the 2017 edition are now open.
