ISE’s NextGen Fellows Program aims to enhance practical skills and substantive expertise for the next generation of global leaders, while establishing connections for them across focus areas and regions. It also provides opportunities for dialogue and research on the applicability of different approaches to contemporary challenges in governance. The Global Fellows Program provides a range of opportunities including:
- A governance course
- Participation and mentorship in professional development opportunities
- Connection to relevant communities of practice through ISE’s programs and initiatives
- Support in completing an applied research project and publication
The Global Fellows are selected on a competitive basis globally based on demonstrated impact on the range of ISE focus areas, commitment to public service, integrity and leadership potential. Fellows are under 40 at the time of selection. Fellows serve for a year, during which time they concentrate on a focus area and/or geographic area.
