Journalists from developing countries are encouraged to apply for the Draper Hills Summer Fellowship on Democracy and Development, a three-week fellowship at Stanford University. The fellowship will be held at the American university from July 25 to August 13, 2010.
University professors and research teams will lead daily seminars and host speeches by prominent members of American political and civil society. Participants will have the opportunity to lead discussion sessions and exchange ideas for positive reform, drawing from experiences in their home countries.
This program is aimed at media professionals in mid-career, as well as policymakers, academics, and leaders of trade unions, nongovernmental organizations, business and professional associations who will play important roles in their country’s political, economic, and social development. Successful applicants will be fluent in English and have a dedication to democracy and development.
