Development Experts Representing Nations Worldwide

THE NEW VOICES FELLOWSHIP AT THE ASPEN INSTITUTE IS A GROUNDBREAKING INITIATIVE DESIGNED TO BRING MORE EXPERT VOICES FROM THE DEVELOPING WORLD INTO THE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT DISCUSSION.

The Fellowship, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, offers development experts from Africa and other parts of the developing world a year-long program of media support, training, research and writing under the guidance of experienced mentors and trainers.

The program will help Fellows to sharpen their messages, elevate their stories, focus their media targets, and communicate their insights across a variety of media platforms – illuminating crucial grassroots perspectives for a broad worldwide audience.

Fellows can be drawn from a variety of development disciplines, ranging from public health and education to poverty alleviation, agriculture, sanitation and community activism.  Ideal candidates are experts in their fields who have a deep understanding of broad development challenges and a passion for communicating their views.
