Reagan-Fascell Fellowship Now Accepting Applications

2019-20 Fellowship Competition Now Open!
Deadline for Applications:
October 15, 2018

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.


The program is intended primarily for practitioners from developing and aspiring democracies, and those from non-democratic countries.

Distinguished scholars from the U.S. 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, research analysts, and other writers who have a Ph.D. or academic equivalent at the time of application.

A working knowledge of English is required.


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


Fall Session: October 1, 2019–February 29, 2020; Spring Session: March 1–July 31, 2020.
