The Fulbright-Masaryk Fellowship for NGO leaders is now a well established program with proven results. Building on the experience of the previous two years of running this program, the interest of NGO leaders is continually growing. This is the only program that can offer NGO staff ways of expanding their expertise through a combination of studies and internship, performed in USA. Monthly stipend and travel allowance should be complemented by a book allowance. The alumni of the program can well demostrate the long term impact of their stay both by showing higher qualification and by utilizing new contacts in their work. Co-funding of the program is requested for the up-coming three years, $5,000 each year.
