Scholarship for young professionals
American Councils is announcing the open competition for the Spring 2017 Professional Fellows Program (PFP), which is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State.

The PFP Scholarship provides fellows with the opportunity to take six-week professional training courses at U.S. institutions and continue to collaborate upon their return. The PFP provides round-trip international and domestic transportation, housing with U.S. host families and supports your joint project and your partner’s joint projects after the program.

During the 5-6-week training course, participants of the PFP undergo training in state legislatures and city halls across the United States, as well as on Capitol Hill and in non-profit organizations that address policy issues.

Applicants must be proficient in English, have at least two years of relevant experience and be 25 to 35 years of age at the time of application (see the attached file). The online application for the program can be completed before November 15, 2016. For details, visit  or send an e-mail to the office of the American Councils for International Education Armenia (pfp@americancouncils.am).
