The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellowship 2024 is a fully-funded fellowship for activists, journalists, civil society leaders, and scholars from all over the world to spend 5 months in residence at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). The exchange program in Washington D.C. allows fellows to undertake independent research on global democratic developments and to undergo research in a particular country or region. The Reagan-Fascell fellowship also provides the opportunity for the fellows to learn advanced skills and expertise from the International Forum for Democratic Studies, as this center is the leading place of analysis about the democratic transitions in the world.
The five-month fully-funded international fellowship in the USA is for the practitioners as well as for the scholars. However, the practitioners will learn the methods to improve the strategies and techniques for building democracy worldwide and the scholars will learn the techniques to conduct original and exclusive research for their publications. In order to gain all the productive experiences, the National Endowment for Democracy Fellowship ensures the engagement of the fellows with other counterparts, the availability of the resources to conduct research and writing, and opportunities to develop professional relationships with a global network of democracy advocates.
The Reagan-Fascell program warmly welcomes practitioners from developing or aspiring democracies and also those who are from non-democratic countries and other established democracies. The NED democracy fellowship program is based on many educational and recreational events which help the fellows to gain knowledge about the work of Enfownment and its other related institutions. The events can be seminars, roundtable conferences, field trips, sports, museum trips, movies and happy hours, etc. All these events are to educate the fellows about education concerning democracy and to promote a sense of collaboration among the fellows.
The Reagan-Fascell NED fellowship deals with specific democracy-related projects. The NED fellows are expected to work on projects that are on the basis of NED-proposed projects. The projects of practitioners as well as scholars must be focused on the political, social, economic, legal, and cultural dimensions of democratic development. The project may also be based on a wide range of methodologies and approaches. The following article is a complete guide about the other financial benefits along with the eligibility and procedure to apply successfully. As NED has a mission to support freedom around the world, the potential candidates who feel themselves the proponent of democratic values and their propagation must not miss the chance to apply to the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellowship program.
