The John Smith Fellowship Programme 2009
The John Smith Memorial Trust is currently seeking applications from
potential candidates for its 2009 Fellowship Programme, to take place
in June/July next year.
The aim of the Fellowship is to enable outstanding individuals to
study political, judicial, constitutional and other relative
institutions and procedures in the United Kingdom and to share
experiences of their own institutions in their countries with their
peers and with British hosts and experts. We aim to foster leadership
qualities in an outstanding group of individuals who on the completion
of their Fellowship will return home to apply what they have learnt
from each other and from the people and places they encounter in the
UK. Our common purpose is to foster better relations and understanding
between the Fellowship countries and the UK and between the Fellowship
countries and each other.
Applications for Fellowships are invited from:
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine
The Trust only accepts applications from these seven countries.
The Trust aims to recruit high-flying and influential young leaders
who will make a substantial impact on the future development of their
countries. The Fellowship Programme is open to political leaders,
government or local government officials, journalists/media experts,
lawyers and influential young leaders from civil society or the NGO
sector. The "ideal" candidate will be aged 25-35, with a track record
of concern for good governance. Good written and spoken English is essential.
