Apply for The Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program at Stanford's Center on Democracy and Development

Brief Description

Training global leaders working on the front lines of democratic change

Who We Are

Founded in 2005, the Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program at Stanford's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law is a three-week training program for global democratic leaders holding senior roles in their respective fields. Fellows live on the Stanford campus and take classes from leading Stanford faculty, visit Silicon Valley technology firms and connect to a peer network of democratic leaders.

About the Program

This training program provides a unique forum for emerging leaders to connect, exchange experiences, and receive academic training to enrich their knowledge and advance their work.

For three weeks during the summer, fellows participate in academic seminars that expose them to the theory and practice of democracy, development, and the rule of law. Delivered by leading Stanford faculty from across the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Affairs, the Stanford Law School, the Graduate School of Business, and the departments of economics and political science, these seminars allow emerging leaders to explore new institutional models and frameworks to enhance their ability to promote democratic change in their home countries.

Deadline is Jan 1, 2020
