Call for Applications: YSEALI Academic Fellowships – Fall 2024 {Funded}

The YSEALI Academic Fellowships is an intensive short-term academic program whose purpose is to provide groups of young leaders with a deeper understanding of the United States and a particular theme, while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.  The Fellowship will focus on one of three themes: Civic Engagement, Environmental Issues, and Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development.

The five-week programs will consist of a balanced series of seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, and lectures.  The coursework and classroom activities will be complemented by educational travel, site visits, leadership activities, and volunteer opportunities within the local community.  During the academic residency, participants will also have opportunities to engage in educational and cultural activities outside of the classroom. The Fellowship also includes an educational study tour to other areas of the United States where they will meet with local, state, private, and nonprofit organizations working in the field. 


  • Through cooperative agreements to the host universities, the U.S. Department of State will cover all participant costs, including international travel costs; technology allowances for the virtual program; travel allowances; program administration; domestic travel and ground transportation; book, cultural, mailing and incidental allowances; and housing and subsistence.
