FELLOWSHIP: Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellowships

The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program at the Washington, D.C.-based National Endowment for Democracy invites applications from candidates across Central-Eastern Europe and Eurasia for fellowships in 2008–2009. Established in 2001, the program enables democracy activists, practitioners, scholars, and journalists from around the world to deepen their understanding of democracy and to enhance their ability to promote democratic change. Fellows are in residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies, the research arm of the Endowment, in Washington, D.C., and receive a stipend, health insurance, and travel assistance. We are especially interested in ensuring that this program becomes known to activists and scholars from Central-Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

The program is intended primarily to support activists, practitioners, and scholars from new and aspiring democracies; distinguished scholars from the United States and other established democracies are also eligible to apply. Projects may focus on the political, social, economic, legal, and cultural aspects of democratic development and may include a range of methodologies and approaches. A working knowledge of English is required.

The application deadline for fellowships in 2008–2009 is Thursday, November 1, 2007. For more information and application materials, please visit www.ned.org/forum/reagan-fascell.html. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at fellowships@ned.org.
