Some more information about scholarship programme. 1.Regions and Countries ADB formulates operational strategies for individual countries, including economic, thematic and sector policy analyses, and undertakes country performance reviews which provide a basis for policy dialogue with the governments of developing member countries. ADB develops a Country Partnership Strategy (CPS), formerly Country Strategy and Program (CSP), which includes an indicative rolling country business plan composed of individual technical assistance and loan projects and programs for priority sectors and/or themes. You can also view the strategies and programs under preparation.

  5. Professional and Post Doctorate: National Endowment for Democracy Reagan-Fascell Democracy Program Named in honor of NED's principal founders, former president Ronald Reagan and the late congressman Dante Fascell, the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program was established in 2001 with funding from the U.S. Congress to enable democratic activists, practitioners, scholars, and journalists from around the world to deepen their understand-ing of democracy and enhance their ability to promote democratic change. Fellows are in residence at the Forum and participate in the collegial life of the Endowment and in the many opportunities for professional exchange in Washington, D.C. The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program is intended primarily for practitioners and scholars from emerging and aspiring democracies. Distinguished scholars from the United States and other established democracies are also eligible to apply. The program offers five-month fellowships for practitioners to improve strategies and techniques for building democ-racy abroad and five- to ten-month fellowships for scholars to conduct original re-search for publica-tion. While the two tracks share many common elements, they have different eligibility requirements and distinct goals, activities, and products associated with them. The Practitioner Track The Reagan-Fascell program was established with the primary purpose of supporting democracy activists, human rights advocates, journalists, and others who work on the frontlines of building democracy in emerging and aspiring democracies. The program provides practitioners with a needed break from their daily routine so that they may reflect on their work, learn from counterparts in the United States, and reevaluate techniques for building democracy in their country of origin. The Scholarly Track In recognition of the importance of intellectual contributions to the theory and practice of democracy, the Reagan-Fascell program offers a scholarly track for scholars, professors, and established writers. Applicants for this track may be scholars from emerging and aspiring democracies or accomplished scholars from the United States and other established democracies. Application Deadline November 10, 2008 Eligibility Requirements The Practitioner Track: Applicants interested in the practitioner track are expected to have substantial practical experience working to promote democracy or human rights in their country of origin or interest. There are no specific degree requirements for the practitioner track. A Ph.D., for instance, is not required of practitioner applicants. While there are also no age limits, applicants on the practitioner track are typically mid-career professionals with several years of professional experience in the field of democracy and human rights. Examples of eligible candidates for the practitioner track include human rights advocates, political party activists, professional staff of civic or humanitarian organizations, international lawyers, journalists, labor leaders, politicians, and diplomats. Practitioner fellowships are typically five months in duration and culminate in a strategic policy memorandum, short article or op-ed, as well as a formal presentation of the fellow's analysis and ideas. The Scholarly Track: Applicants interested in the scholarly track are expected to possess a doctorate (a Ph.D., or academic equivalent) at the time of application, to have published in their field of expertise, and to have developed a detailed research outline for their fellowship project. Examples of eligible candidates for the scholarly track include college and university professors, analysts at research centers and "think tanks," and independent writers. Occasionally, a professional who is planning to write a book or other scholarly publication may qualify to apply on the scholarly track. English Language Requirement A working knowledge of English is an important prerequisite for participation in the program. While the fellow's primary product may be in his/her native language, it is expected that he/she will have a solid command of written and spoken English for general communication purposes. All application materials must be submitted in English (or accompanied by an English translation) . Additionally to the application form a project proposal; resume or CV and three letters of recommendation are required. See Information Booklet for details.

At times the need of the student is far greater than the College's resources can meet. In such a case, the Admission Office will correspond with the student stating that no offer of aid is being made due to that fact. The student in this case is given an opportunity to submit a new Declaration of Finances, indicating available resources to be higher.

  13. Andrew W. Mellon Foundation -Postdoctoral Fellow positions in Environmental Studies The Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) The Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) is a consortium of sixteen nationally recognized, distinguished liberal arts colleges and universities (http://www.colleges .org/institution s.html), located in twelve southern states (see map at http:// www.colleges. org/acsmap. html). Since 1998, our institutions have grown increasingly stronger in the field of Environmental Studies, and because of our excellent faculty and strong student interest, we continue to thrive in this academic area. Therefore we were gratified recently when the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded the consortium $3.5 million to create postdoctoral Fellow positions in Environmental Studies at our institutions. With these funds, we will hire 24 new Ph.D.'s at approximately $45,000 per year (plus benefits and travel funds). For two years each, those Ph.D.'s will teach 2-3 environmental studies courses per year. They will also have plenty of time for research, and will be mentored by seasoned professors in their fields. In addition, Fellows will have many excellent opportunities to discover the advantages of teaching at small private liberal arts institutions while they engage in creative exchanges with faculty at all 16 of our institutions. Obviously, we would like to recruit topnotch young Ph.D.'s to fill these postdoctoral positions. With your help, we would like to begin by focusing our search within member institutions of the Association of American Universities. Therefore, I am writing to request a contact name and email address of a graduate advisor at your institution to help us identify promising young Ph.D.'s who might be interested in this opportunity. If at all possible, we would like this contact information by the first week of October. We thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter, and hope that our future collaboration will be beneficial to your institution as well as to our own colleges and universities. Elizabeth L.
