Background information: In October 2017 twenty young civic activists from six Eastern Partnership countries has been awarded Fellowships under the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility to pursue a programme of activities that will allow them to develop their leadership skills, and enhance their contribution to civil society development in their respective countries.  This support is an investment in the development of young current civic activists or civically minded individuals from the EaP region, who display the interest and ability of taking leading roles in the growth of their societies. The Fellowship programme contributes to the broader aims of EU support to civil society development in this region.

The Fellows’ chosen topics for the work programme of the Fellowship covers a range of priority areas in the civil society realm – e.g. addressing the needs of local communities through engagement in participatory decision-making, monitoring and analysis of policy implementation and the work of government institutions (at local, municipal, national levels), capacity-building and networking among CSOs. The outputs anticipated by the end of the Fellowship period (awards are made for activities lasting up to 6 months) include policy papers on a range of important themes, e-learning course materials, visualisation of archive material, and the establishment of functioning networks of activists.
