Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program
Named in honor of the two principal founders of NED, former president Ronald Reagan and the late congressman Dante Fascell, 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.
Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows maintain full-time residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies, NED’s research arm located in Washington, D.C. The Forum hosts 16 to 20 Reagan-Fascell Fellows per year for periods ranging from five to ten months.
NED’s International Forum for Democratic Studies also hosts a small number of Visiting Fellows each year. Visiting Fellows are scholars and practitioners who wish to conduct research and writing at the Forum for a limited period of time but do not need any financial assistance.
