 We are writing to request your assistance in publicizing a federally
funded fellowship program at the National Endowment for Democracy in
Washington, D.C. Established in 2001 by the U.S. Congress and supported
annually through a grant from the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of
Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows
Program enables activists, practitioners, scholars, and journalists from
around the world to deepen their understanding of democracy and enhance
their ability to promote democratic change.
 We are especially interested in ensuring that this program becomes
known to scholars and activists from the Latin America and the
Caribbean. A detailed description of the program appears in the
announcement below and in the attached English-Arabic flyer.
 As this is a federally funded initiative, we believe that U.S. embassy
public affairs officers are well placed to promote our fellowship
program. Given your embassy's important role in the promotion of human
rights and democracy in this vital region of the world, we would be
grateful if you could publicize the attached announcement within the
professional, scholarly, and media communities of the country in which
you are posted and beyond. You may wish to use an office bulletin,
electronic mailing list, press release, web posting, library resource,
or other appropriate venues, for spreading the word about the program.
 Thank you very much for your assistance in this endeavor. If you have
questions or need further information of any kind, please do not
hesitate to contact us at <mailto:fellowships@ned.org>

The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) invites applications to its
Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program. Established in 2001 to enable
activists, scholars, and journalists from around the world to deepen
their understanding of democracy and enhance their ability to promote
democratic change, the fellowship program is based at NED's
International Forum for Democratic Studies, in Washington, D.C.

Program: The program offers two tracks: a practitioner track (typically
three to five months) to improve strategies and techniques for building
democracy abroad and to exchange ideas and experiences with counterparts
in the United States; and a scholarly track (typically five to ten
months) to conduct original research for publication. Projects may focus
on the political, social, economic, legal, and cultural aspects of
democratic development and include a range of methodologies and

Eligibility: The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program is intended
primarily to support practitioners and scholars from new and aspiring
democracies. Distinguished scholars from the United States and other
established democracies are also eligible to apply. Practitioners are

the time of application. The program is not designed to support students
working toward a degree. A working knowledge of English is an important
prerequisite for participation in the program.

Support: The fellowship year begins October 1 and runs through July 31,
with major entry dates in October and March. All fellows receive a
monthly stipend, health insurance, travel assistance, and research
support through the Forum's Democracy Resource Center and Reagan-Fascell
Research Consultancy Program.
