Global Initiative Resilience Fund -Apply for Resilience Fellowship 2020: Applications are being welcomed from suitably qualified candidates for the Resilience Fellowship 2020; a one year fellowship program for professionals around the globe
The Resilience Fellowship has been launched to build a platform for cross-sectoral, global, and interdisciplinary collaboration between civil society actors, human-rights activists, journalists, artists, scholars, policy makers, grassroots community leaders, and others working to counter the effects of organized crime.
The Fellowship is based on a three-pronged approach:
- Sponsorship: Providing financial support so that Resilience Fellows will have the time and resources for their individual work and a collaborative project during the fellowship year. Grants of USD $15 000 per Fellow will be awarded for one year.
- Networking: Offering mentorship opportunities with experts from GI-TOC, as well as bringing Resilience Fellows together via a residency retreat to begin the collaborative project to be undertaken during their fellowship year.
- Dissemination: Creating a platform for Resilience Fellows to publicly share their work and ideas — via such venues as festivals, conferences, civil society forums, and national and international publications — which will widen public discourse, deepen engagement with society, and invite the support and participation from the general public and, ultimately, policymakers.
