Applications are being accepted for the Galina Starovoitova fellowship at the Kennan Institute in Washington, D.C.

Researchers, journalists and activists who are citizens of the Russian Federation are invited to apply for the program to do research about freedom of press, human rights, civil society and other topics. The research must be done in the Kennan Institute.

The program, named after human rights advocate and politician Galina Starovoitova, starts in September 2011. The fellowship offers a monthly stipend, research facilities, computer support, and research assistance.

Starovoitova fellows are expected to hold public lectures on the themes of conflict resolution and human rights while conducting research on a specific topic.

In addition, they will actively participate in discussions with the public policy and academic communities, including giving speeches and lectures at other institutions and taking part in meetings and conferences at the Kennan Institute.
