National Endowment for Democracy - Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program

The National Endowment for Democracy invites applications to its Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program for fellowships. The Reagan-Fascell 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. Fellows maintain full-time residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies located in Washington, D.C. The Forum hosts 16 to 20 Reagan-Fascell Fellows per year for periods ranging from five to ten months. The program offers two tracks, a practitioner track and a scholarly track. The practitioner track seeks to provide experienced activists with an opportunity to reflect on their work, learn from counterparts in the United States, and reevaluate techniques for building democracy in their country of origin. The scholarly track is principally for professors and researchers from emerging and aspiring democracies. Accomplished scholars from established democracies are also eligible to apply.
