Aspen Institute New Voices Fellowship 2019 for Development Professionals (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: October 15th 2018

The Aspen Institute’s New Voices Fellowship is a year-long media skills, communication and leadership program designed for standout development professionals from the developing world. 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.

Requirements:

  • The Fellowship is recruiting a total of 25 Fellows for 2019.
  • Aspen Institute is looking for 15 Fellows who are development experts in fields such as food security, global health, development economics, health and human rights, and climate change.
  • Aspen is also looking for 10 Fellows who are experts working on the frontlines of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

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.

Benefits:

  • All expenses related to the fellowship are paid, including certain media-related travel costs.

Application Process:

  • Ask someone to nominate you. This person could be a mentor, supervisor or professor. We ask that this person know you and your work well.
  • We will review your nomination. If you pass through the first round, we’ll be in touch with you directly, asking you to submit an application. This application involves two essays and a series of questions
  • Once the New Voices team has reviewed applications, we will ask a small group of finalists to participate in an interview via Skype or phone. From this group, we will choose the final class of Fellows.
