The Social Policy and Coexistence Fellowship includes full tuition and health insurance for the year-in-residence, and continuation fees for the subsequent summer and fall terms. The Fellowship does not include university fees, airfare, or living expenses.
• The applicant must already be working in a government or international governmental organization and must be working or intending to work within the next two years, on issues of coexistence/diversity within their region or country. Applicants who are civil society leaders, or in a position to directly impact social policy in their home country will also be considered.
• All participants will be required to submit an annual report for 3 years after they return to their organization, showing how they have used their Conflict Resolution and Coexistence knowledge and skills within their region or country. This will detail e.g. what new coexistence policies/ practices have been developed, what existing practices have been strengthened and what institutions/units within government or an international organization have been created, the challenges the graduates faced, and whether (or not) such work is now seen as an essential part of the future work of the government/organization.
