The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is pleased to welcome its Fall 2021 cohort of Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows and Visiting Fellows.
Joining our international virtual exchange program this season are leading democracy activists, practitioners, and scholars from a number of countries around the world, including the Republic of the Congo, Iran, Georgia, and Nigeria.
Named in honor of President Ronald Reagan and the late Congressman Dante Fascell (D-FL), whose bipartisan vision led to NED’s founding, the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program seeks to expand the knowledge, broaden the perspectives, build the capacity, and boost the morale of some of the world’s most committed and courageous democracy advocates.
Based at the International Forum for Democratic Studies, NED’s research and publications arm, in Washington, D.C., the Reagan-Fascell program has enabled more than 320 fellows from over 100 countries to deepen their understanding of democracy and enhance their ability to work toward democratic change. Through its Visiting Fellows Program, the Forum hosts occasional democracy scholars and practitioners who may not be in need of financial support.
