The John Smith Memorial Trust is currently seeking applications from potential candidates for its 2010 Fellowship Programme, to take place over five weeks in June/July next year.

The aim of our Fellowship is to enable exceptional individuals to study political, judicial, constitutional and other relative institutions and procedures in the United Kingdom and to share experiences of their own institutions with their peers and with British hosts and experts. We aim to foster leadership qualities in an outstanding group of individuals who, on the completion of their Fellowship, will return home to apply what they have learnt during their time in the UK. Our common purpose is to foster better relations and understanding between the Fellowship countries and the UK and between the Fellowship countries and each other.

Applications for Fellowships are invited from: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine

Please note that the Trust only accepts applications from these seven countries.

DEADLINE – the deadline for all applications and supporting documents is November 9th 2009.

We aim to recruit high-flying and influential young leaders who will make a substantial impact on the future development of their countries. The Fellowship Programme is open to political leaders, government or local government officials, journalists/media experts, lawyers and influential young leaders from civil society or the NGO sector. The “ideal” candidate will be aged 25-40, with a track record of achievement in the area of good governance and public service. Good written and spoken English is essential.
