Established in 2001, the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program enables democracy activists, practitioners, scholars, and journalists from around the world to deepen their understanding of democracy and enhance their ability to promote democratic change. Fellows are in residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies, the research arm of the Endowment, in Washington, D.C., and receive a stipend, health insurance, and travel assistance. We are especially interested in ensuring that this program becomes known to scholars and activists in emerging and aspiring democracies. Given your organization's important role in the promotion of human rights and democracy around the world, we are turning to you for assistance in spreading the word about our program. Included below, and in the attached flyer, is a brief announcement describing the fellows program, with a link to our website, where viewers may download our "Information and Application Forms" booklet. We would be grateful if you could publicize our fellowship announcement and flyer by way of a web posting, email listserv, newsletter, office bulletin, press release, or by word of mouth. Thank you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.

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.

A working knowledge of English is an important prerequisite for participation in the program.
