Experienced journalists worldwide who wish to learn more about democracy can apply for a fellowship.
The Washington-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED)
invites journalists to apply to be part of the 2013-2014 Reagan-Fascell
Democracy Fellows Program. This federally funded program enables
democracy activists, practitioners, scholars and journalists to deepen
their understanding of democracy and enhance their ability to promote
democratic change. Selected applicants will be in residence at the
National Endowment for Democracy in either Fall 2013 (October 1,
2013–February 28, 2014) or Spring 2014 (March 1–July 31, 2014).
The program is intended primarily to support practitioners, scholars
and journalists from developing and aspiring democracies; but
distinguished scholars from established democracies may also 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 receive a monthly fellowship payment, health insurance,
travel assistance at the beginning and end of their fellowship, and
research support. Awardees my not receive concurrent funding from the
Endowment or its family of institutes during the fellowship period. The
program does not fund professional training, fieldwork or students
working towards a degree. A working knowledge of English is required.
The application deadline is October 15.
