The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program is an international exchange program that offers practitioners, scholars, and journalists from around the world the opportunity to spend five months at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) in Washington DC. The fellowship is intended primarily for individuals from developing and aspiring democracies. Distinguished scholars from the U.S. and other established democracies are eligible to apply. Practitioners and journalists should have substantial work experience, while scholars are expected to have a Ph.D., or equivalent. Fellowships include a monthly payment, health insurance and airfare.
