The Prague Civil Society Center has launched a new Fellowship Programme for 2018.
The Fellowships are fully funded three-month research residencies in Prague for individuals from Eastern Europe and Central Asia. This includes experts, researchers, human rights defenders, environmental or urban activists, journalists and members of NGOs and civic-minded groups.
Those interested can use this opportunity to:
- research challenges, opportunities and trends affecting civil society in your country or region;
- write a book or training manual, policy or analytical paper;
- conceptualise and initiate a new project.
All travel and living expenses are covered by the Prague Civil Society Centre and the fellows will have the opportunity to receive a small grant to aid the development of their project. There will also be opportunities for professional development, networking and English language training.
The maximum length of the fellowship is 90 days and there will be two intakes: Summer 2018 (June-August) and Autumn 2018 (September-December).
The project proposal should aim to reflect and elaborate upon the current work in the home country of the fellows. They should demonstrate how participating in the fellowship programme will aid their work upon returning home, how they will share the knowledge and expertise gained during the fellowship or how they plan to develop cross-country or regional collaborative projects and networks.
The deadline for submitting project proposals is the 10th of March 2018.
