National Endowment for Democracy journalism fellowships open [Worldwide]

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.
