Applications are open for fully funded exchange program called Digital Communication Network program, which is now entering its fourth year after successful segments in both the United States and in Europe. Funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented by World Learning, the Digital Communications Network exchange program created and supports a collaborative network of communication professionals from across Europe and Central Asia, working together to strengthen communication skills through the development and dissemination of digital content.
Over the last year, over 100 fellows from more than 20 countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia participated in our exchange program with the goal of exploring the ways that digital information technology has impacted our way of life from e-governments, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, social movements, and the media. The program alumni created the Digital Communication Network (DigiComNet), an international association to connect professionals in the digital age from a variety of backgrounds in order to generate ideas, tools, and products for media outlets, civil society organizations, businesses, and government. Now, over 5,000 members of the DigiComNet engage in cross-sector learning and the promotion of a free flow of quality information across borders. Since the first program in October 2015, DigiComNet organized a variety of events in Moldova, Estonia, Lithuania, Armenia, Poland, Ukraine, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Slovakia, and an upcoming event in Montenegro.
A total of 16 participants will be selected through an open competition process to come to the United States for a 17-day long professional program, scheduled from September 11-28, 2019.
Selection will be based on the overall quality of the candidates, as well as their willingness and preparedness to make a contribution to the program. Please note that not all countries will be represented. Candidates from other countries should not apply.
