Application open for Hurford Youth Fellowship Program 2023. Are you ready to build your leadership skills? Would you like to meet other youth leaders from around the world? Now’s your chance!

This program seeks to build the leadership skills and harness the potential of young democracy activists from around the world.

Through the Program, young activists spend three months at the World Movement’s Secretariat, during which they expand their global connections, share experiences with other activists from democracy movements around the world, and contribute to the development of the World Movement for Democracy.

Hurford Youth Fellows engage in strategic meetings; conduct research; and organize and lead presentations, online discussions, and information-sharing sessions on key democracy issues.


  • Each fellow will receive a monthly stipend for living expenses, plus health insurance and roundtrip travel to and from Washington DC. Stipends take into account the cost of living in Washington DC.
  • Fellows are provided with a fully equipped office, including internet and email access, and a limited budget for fellowship-related long-distance phone calls.
  • The World Movement Secretariat staff plays a vital role in helping fellows realize their fellowship objectives by collaborating with them on their fellowship projects and engaging them in ongoing discussions about their work.
  • NED houses a Democracy Resource Center (DRC), which includes a library with some 20,000 works. The DRC’s expert staff members assist fellows with their research interests. Fellows may enjoy access to other local libraries as needed.
