Professional Fellows Program Digest

Since 2012, Partners of the Americas has been managing the Professional Fellows Program, a global exchange program funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State that is designed to strengthen leadership capacity and professional skills for mid-level professionals. The program offers Fellows the opportunity to participate in substantive professional development in the U.S. and in Latin America and the Caribbean while working closely with professional counterparts throughout the region.

In 2013, under the theme of Legislative Process and Governance, 56 Fellows from Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and the United States participated in this program and represented not only their home institutions and home countries but Partners as well during their multi-week fellowship.

Check out the most recent issue of the ProFellows Digest for an overview of the last group of international Fellows who were in the U.S. late last year. The digest also features one of our U.S. Fellows, Maureen Ramirez (page 5), who spent three weeks in El Salvador working with Iniciativa Social para la Democracia (ISD).

Interested in learning more about the Legislative Fellows Program? Click here!  We are currently recruiting for U.S. Fellows to travel to participating Latin American & Caribbean (LAC) countries in the late summer and for LAC Fellows to come to the U.S. this  fall!
