ISE’s Fellows program aims to enhance practical skills and substantive expertise for the new 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 program provides a range of opportunities including: (1) the governance course; (2) participation and mentorship in professional development; (3) connection to relevant communities of practice through ISE’s programs and initiatives, and (4) support in completing an applied research project and publication. The Fellows are selected on a competitive basis from around the globe based on demonstrated potential impact on the range of ISE focus areas, commitment to public service, integrity and leadership potential. Fellows serve for a year, during which time they concentrate on a focus and/or geographic area.
