The Clara Marina O'Donnell Fellowship 

The Clara Marina O’Donnell fellowship was established in memory of Clara, who died of cancer at the age of 30 in January 2014. She worked as a researcher at the Centre for European Reform, mainly covering foreign and defence policy, for seven years. For some of that period she was based at the Brookings Institution, in Washington DC.  She graduated in European Studies from King’s College London, before taking a Masters in International Relations at the University of Cambridge.

This fellowship programme is managed by Brookings (the Centre for the United States and Europe), Cambridge (the Department of Politics and International Studies), Kings (the Department of European & International Studies) and the CER.
