Prazo de inscrição: 3 de outubro de 2018

Nomeado em homenagem aos principais fundadores do NED, o ex-presidente Ronald Reagan e o falecido congressista Dante Fascell (D-Fl.), O Programa Fellows de Democracia Reagan-Fascell is a federally funded, international exchange program that offers democracy activists, journalists, civil society leaders, and scholars from around the world the opportunity to spend five months in residence at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), in Washington, D.C., in order to undertake independent research on democracy in a particular country or region. Located within NED’s Fórum Internacional para Estudos Democráticos, um dos principais centros de análise dos desenvolvimentos democráticos globais, o programa oferece um ambiente colegial e rico ambiente intelectual para intercâmbio educacional e desenvolvimento profissional.

O programa oferece bolsas de cinco meses para praticantes melhorar estratégias e técnicas para construir a democracia no exterior e bolsas de cinco meses para estudiosos to conduct original research for publication. While in residence, fellows reflect on their experiences; engage with counterparts; conduct research and writing; consider best practices and lessons learned; and develop professional relationships within a global network of democracy advocates.

Fellows are expected to complete a written product relating to their proposed research project. The fellowship culminates in a formal presentation in which fellows typically focus on their research project or another topic relating to the state of democracy in their country.

Detalhes do Programa

Program Activities: Through its calendar of seminars, roundtables, field trips, and other events, the program seeks to: (a) build knowledge about the work of the Endowment and its core institutes; (b) provide education concerning democracy through field trips and seminars; (c) support outreach for dialogue and interaction with the governmental, nongovernmental, academic, and media communities around town and beyond; and (d) promote a sense of collegiality among fellows as a group. In addition, fellows benefit from the many informal social and cultural activities that the program has to offer, including trips to sporting events, museums, movies, and happy hours.

Ajuda financeira: Each fellow receives a monthly stipend for living expenses, plus basic health insurance and roundtrip travel to and from Washington, D.C., at the beginning and end of the fellowship period. Fellowship payments are calculated to cover cost of a short-term, furnished rental apartment, plus “cost of living” for food, local transportation, and other necessities. Fellows are provided with a fully equipped office, plus a limited budget for long-distance phone calls and professional travel within the United States. Please note that fellows who wish to bring family members with them to Washington, D.C., will be expected to cover the costs of their dependents’ roundtrip travel and stay within the United States.

Research Associates: Research associates are assigned to work with several fellows and provide critical support in a variety of ways: consulting with fellows on the shape and direction of their projects, providing research, written, and editorial support on issues relating to the theory and practice of democracy, facilitating outreach, aiding in the preparation and follow-up of fellows’ public presentations, and providing other assistance as necessary.

Centro de Recursos para Democracia: Housed at NED, the Democracy Resource Center (DRC) is staffed by four librarians and contains approximately 20,000 works, including books, journals, grantee reports, and other publications on democracy.

Vistos: Prior to their arrival in the United States, prospective fellows who are neither citizens nor permanent residents of the United States must obtain a J-1 exchange visitor visa in order to travel to the United States. Accompanying family members must obtain a Visto J-2.

Fellowship applicants cannot have participated in a J-1 research scholar program within the 24 months immediately preceding their Reagan-Fascell fellowship. Fellows who are sponsored on our J-1 visa are typically required by U.S. law to return to their home country for two years following the completion of their fellowship before they may apply for an H visa, an L visa, or for legal permanent residence.

Fellowship Project

Projects may focus on the political, social, economic, legal, and cultural aspects of democratic development and may include a range of methodologies and approaches. Projects should reflect the interests and expertise of the applicant and are not expected to include a study of, or comparison with, democracy in the United States.

Program staff consult with fellows on the theme and scope of their project, as well as their final product. Fellows must complete a written product (article, report, manual, book manuscript, etc.), in English or any other language, related to their research project.
