The Reagan Fascell Democracy Fellowship Program is now accepting applications

2020-21 Fellowship Competition Now Open!


Deadline for Applications:

October 1, 2019

Dedicated to international exchange, the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program offers five-month fellowships to leading democracy activists, journalists, civil society leaders, and scholars from around the world. During their time in residence at NED's International Forum for Democratic Studies, in Washington D.C., fellows reflect on their experiences and consider lessons learned; conduct independent research and writing; engage with colleagues and counterparts in the United States; and build ties with a global network of democracy advocates.


We encourage qualified candidates to apply or share this call for applications with other democracy advocates! 

Eligibility: The program is intended primarily for practitioners from developing and aspiring democracies, and those from nondemocratic countries. Distinguished scholars from the United States and other established democracies are also eligible to apply. Practitioners include activists, journalists, lawyers, and civil society professionals who have substantial experience in their field. Scholars include professors, researchers, and other writers who have a Ph.D. or academic equivalent at the time of application. A working knowledge of English is required.


Support: Fellows receive monthly payments to cover living expenses, plus basic health insurance, travel reimbursement, and research support.


Fellowship Dates: Fall Session: October 1, 2020–February 28, 2021; Spring Session: March 1–July 31, 2021.
