Training Program for NGO Professionals
October 15, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This opportunity offers an intensive media and advocacy training for NGO professionals working in the fields of global health, human rights, food security and nutrition, environment and climate change, water and sanitation, entrepreneurship, tech, governance, education and others.
The Aspen Institute in Washington DC is seeking nominations for its 2020 New Voices Fellowship which is a year-long program that provides intensive media and advocacy training for front-line development experts.
With support from a team of experienced mentors and trainers, New Voices fellows develop and amplify their ideas to bring about meaningful change. Candidates for the Fellowship are expected to have both a record of significant professional achievement and a desire to share their perspectives on global development with a broader international audience. The Fellowship is open by nomination only.
While the fellowship is non-resident and not full-time, it does require a significant and sustained time commitment as fellows write opinion articles, participate in interviews with local and international media, and speak at international conferences.
The Fellowship is recruiting a total of 25 Fellows for 2020. They are looking for 15 Fellows who are development experts in fields such as food security, global health, development economics, health and human rights, mental health, and climate change. They are also looking for 10 Fellows who are experts working on the front-lines of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
- Candidates from any developing country are eligible to apply.
- The Fellowship is open by nomination only.
- Candidates for the Fellowship are expected to have both a record of significant professional achievement and a desire to share their perspectives on global development with a broader international audience.
