Calling for Application - The 2017 Professional Fellows Program on Development Management

CECEM and the Mansfield Center of the University of Montana are seeking applicants for the 2017 Professional Fellows Program, sponsored by the U.S. Embassy. The 5th year program continues to focus on development management, to promote mutual understanding, enhance leadership and professional skills, and build sustainable partnerships between emerging leaders from foreign countries and the U.S. We are seeking emerging leaders working in development organizations in different fields such as education, environment, civic engagement, and economic empowerment, etc. The required age range for participants is from 25-to-35-years of age.

During the five-week program in the United States, participants will gain firsthand knowledge of how organizations and institutions operate, while also participating in site visits and specially-designed seminars.  An important part of the program is a Fellowship.  Participants will be matched with a similar organization in Montana and work with an American counterpart for one month.  Vietnamese participants may also be asked to host a U.S. participant at their place of work.

The deadline for receipt of applications is December 1st, 2016. Only shortlisted candidates will be called for an interview in January 2017.
