Hurford Youth Fully Funded Fellowship Program

The Hurford Youth Fellowship Program, facilitated by the World Movement for Democracy, seeks emerging civil society leaders from around the world who are committed to defending and promoting universal democratic principles. Through the Hurford program, two young activists will spend four months at the World Movement Secretariat office in Washington, D.C., where they will expand their global network, learn lessons from activists involved in democracy movements around the world, and contribute to the development of the World Movement for Democracy and the World Youth Movement for Democracy.

Hurford Youth Fellows will conduct research and organize presentations and online discussions on key democracy issues. A project completed by the Fellows will be publicized and shared globally. The fellowship is open to applicants no older than 30 years of age from any country. Additional information and the Hurford Youth Fellow applications can be found here. Applications will be accepted until March 14, 2018.

Please Note: The Hurford Youth Fellows Program is open to applicants from any country. It does not provide scholarship funds or any other type of financial aid to university or graduate students, nor is it designed to support postdoctoral research. The program is not an educational program offering academic courses leading toward a degree. In addition, it does not provide financial support to those seeking to complete professional training programs, attend conferences, or pursue internships at other organizations.

Each fellow will receive a monthly stipend for living expenses, plus basic health insurance and round trip travel to and from Washington, D.C. Stipends take into account the cost of living in Washington, D.C. 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, including books, journals, grantee reports, and other publications on democracy. The DRC’s expert staff members assist fellows with their research interests. Fellows may enjoy access to other local libraries as needed.

Applicants are asked to submit the following documents:
