The John Smith Memorial Trust and British Council are inviting
applications to participate in the John Smith Fellowship Programme 2004.

The Programme aims to strengthen and deepen democratic awareness and
leadership through a 6-week course in the United Kingdom combining
classroom study, work placements and visits. The "ideal" candidate will
be aged 25-35, working in politics, local administration or civil
society, with a track record of concern for tackling poverty and
promoting social justice. Good written and spoken English is essential.

Applications for Fellowships are invited from Armenia, Georgia,
Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia and  Ukraine Only.

The primary objectives of the John Smith Fellowship Programme are to:

- Bring together young civil society and political leaders to exchange
views and receive training and information on democratic practices and
the promotion of good government.

- Deepen awareness of the needs of poor and disadvantaged groups within
a society, and encourage democratic access and accountability.

- Promote a dialogue between Fellows within and outside their home
countries, and create and maintain links with young leaders and those
working in similar fields in the U.K.

Applications for the year 2004 Programme must be submitted to your local
British Council office no later than 12 December 2003. Final selection
of candidates will be concluded by the end of February 2004.
