We are not just a crowd to be governed and to be influenced. We are, first of all, citizens with rights that are now violated. I wish everyone understand that. Kulakevych Anastasia, 2013 winner

2012-2013 Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program National Endowment for Democracy

The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program at the Washington, D.C.-based National Endowment for Democracy invites applications for fellowships in 2012-2013. This federally-funded program enables democracy activists, practitioners, scholars, and journalists from around the world to deepen their understanding of democracy and enhance their ability to promote democratic change. Dedicated to international exchange, this five-month, residential program offers a collegial environment for fellows to reflect on their experiences and consider best practices; conduct independent research and writing; engage with colleagues and counterparts in the United States; and develop professional relationships within a global network of democracy advocates.
The program is intended primarily to support practitioners and scholars from developing and aspiring democracies; distinguished scholars from 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. All fellows devote full-time to their projects and receive a monthly fellowship payment, health insurance, travel assistance at the beginning and end of their fellowship, and research support. Awardees may not receive concurrent funding from the Endowment or its family of institutes during the fellowshp period. The program does not fund professional training, fieldwork, or students working towards a degree. A working knowledge of English is required.
The program will host two five-month fellowship sessions in 2012-2013: Fall 2012 (October 1, 2012-February 28, 2013) and Spring 2013 (March 1-July 31, 2013).
Deadline: Tuesday, November 1, 2011. For more information, visit http://www.ned.org/fellowships/reagan-fascell-democracy-fellows-program. Applications will be accepted through our online application system beginning August 1, 2011 at http://fellowships.ned.org.
