Launched in 2005, the Draper Hills Summer Fellowship on Democracy and Development Program (DHSFDD) is a three-week academic training program that is hosted annually at Stanford University’s Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. The program brings together a group of 25 to 30 mid-career practitioners in law, politics, government, private enterprise, civil society, and international development from transitioning countries. This training program provides a unique forum for emerging leaders to connect, exchange experiences, and receive academic training to enrich their knowledge and advance their work.
- Stanford will pay for accommodations, meals, and transportation costs during the duration of the Program.
- A small travel fund is available for fellows who under no circumstances can support their travel or need to apply for a partial subsidy
- Priority for accessing the travel fund will be given based on need, and destinations from which airline fares to California are exorbitant
- Applicants should play important and influential roles in their country’s political, economic, and social development
- Successful applicants will have academic credentials necessary to participate and contribute to the six-hour seminars each day and tackle advanced academic readings to complement the classroom-based curriculum
- A working knowledge of English is an important prerequisite for participation in the program.
