Applications call for Fully funded Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellowship Program

The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellowship Program is a federally funded, international exchange program that offers democracy activists, journalists, civil society leaders, and scholars from around the world the opportunity to spend five months in residence at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), in Washington, D.C., in order to undertake independent research on democracy in a particular country or region. Located within NED’s INTERNATIONAL FORUM FOR DEMOCRATIC STUDIES, a leading center for the analysis of global democratic developments, the program provides a collegial environment and rich intellectual setting for educational exchange and professional development. Moreover, the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellowship Program has two tracks

  • Practitioner Track
  • Scholarly Track

Funding and Benefits 

The program offers five-month fellowships for practitioners to improve strategies and techniques for building democracy abroad and five-month fellowships for scholars to conduct original research for publication. While in residence, fellows reflect on their experiences; engage with counterparts; conduct research and writing; consider best practices and lessons learned; and develop professional relationships within a global network of democracy advocates. Fellows are expected to complete a written product relating to their proposed research project. The fellowship culminates in a formal presentation in which fellows typically focus on their research project or another topic relating to the state of democracy in their country.


All applicants should:

  • Demonstrate proficiency in the English language.
  • Propose a project focusing on the political, social, economic, legal or cultural aspects of democratic development.
  • Be available to work in residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies in Washington, D.C. during the 5 month fellowship period (October 1-February 28 or March 1-July 31). No other fellowships or jobs may be held at this time.

Applicants on the practitioner track should:

  • Have substantial practical experience working to promote democracy or human rights in their country of origin or interest.
  • Be mid-career professionals.

Applicants on the scholarly track should:

  • Possess a doctorate (a Ph.D., or academic equivalent) at the time of application.
  • Have a proven record of publications in their field.
  • Have developed a detailed research outline for their fellowship project.
