National Endowment for Democracy Invites Applications for Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program

The National Endowment for Democracy's Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program is designed to help activists, practitioners, scholars, and journalists from around the world deepen their understanding of democracy and enhance their ability to promote democratic change.

The program offers five-month fellowships to practitioners so that they can focus on strategies and best practices for developing democracy in their country of interest, as well as to scholars to conduct original research for publication. Fellows maintain full-time residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies, NED's research arm, in Washington, D.C.

The program is intended primarily to support individuals from developing and aspiring democracies. A working knowledge of English is required. Applicants on the practitioner track are typically mid-career professionals with several years of professional experience in the field of democracy and human rights. There are no specific degree requirements.

Applicants interested in the scholarly track are expected to possess a doctorate (a PhD or academic equivalent) at the time of application, to have a proven record of publications in their field, and to have developed a detailed research outline for their fellowship project.

The forum hosts sixteen to twenty fellows per year. Each fellow receives a monthly stipend for living expenses, health insurance, and reimbursement for travel.

See the NED website for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
