HERE ARE SOME FACTS:

 

WHAT IT IS ABOUT

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 – 12 women and 8 men, aged 18 to 36, – come from all 6 EaP countries, and were selected on the basis of their track-record of achievements to date, and the strong potential they demonstrated in their proposals, to act as drivers of change in the civic sphere. They come from a range of backgrounds – some having worked in Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), others from the think-tank or research sphere, others have been engaged in informal civic activities to date.

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.

Mentoring of the Fellows will be provided by the EaP Civil Society Facility project, as well (in relevant cases) host organisations at which Fellows will spend a period during their programme.
