STANFORD UNIVERSITY has announced that applications for the Draper Hills Summer Fellowship on Democracy and Development must be received by December 12. The program is a three-week executive education program that is run annually on the Stanford campus by an interdisciplinary team of Stanford faculty.
The program brings together a group of approximately 28 practitioners in law, politics, government, private enterprise, civil society and international development from transitioning countries. Previous fellows have been presidential advisers, senators, attorneys general, lawyers, journalists entrepreneurs and members of the international development community.
For three weeks, fellows participate in morning seminars with a team of leading Stanford professors and professional research staff from Stanford Law School, the Graduate School of Business, the Economics and Political Science departments as well as the Hoover Institution. In the afternoons, prominent American business and political leaders, academics and journalists talk about their experiences and professions, and fellows lead sessions themselves, sharing insight into how reform progressed (or failed to progress) in their home countries and exchange ideas for positive change.
The dates for the 2012 Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program are Sunday, July 22 through Friday, August 10, 2012.
