Deadline: December 19, 2016
The Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy (TIMEP) is currently accepting applications for a May 2017 placement in the Bassem Sabry Democracy Fellowship. The Bassem Sabry Democracy Fellowship was established in memory of Egyptian political writer and commentator Bassem Sabry. The fellowship is awarded to a young professional with a background in journalism, international relations, political science, or other relevant field who is interested in undertaking research on the Middle East or North Africa.
Through this unique fellowship, incoming fellows will have the opportunity to work on an independent research paper or project of their own design. Applicants will propose their research program and will be paired with a mentor from TIMEP to guide them through its execution. The fellowship will last for a period of six months, and fellows will be selected based on their credentials and proposed projects or research.
To apply for the Bassem Sabry Democracy Fellowship, all applicants must complete a two-step application process hosted by our partner organization, Atlas Corps. Once completed, eligible applicants will be invited to submit a personal statement and research project/paper proposal.
To get started:
Finalists will be contacted by January 27, 2017 to submit a personal statement and research paper/project proposal by February 6, 2017.
