Call for applications, Weinstein International Fellowship - Dispute Resolution/Conflict Resolution

Weinstein International Fellowship

The Weinstein International Fellowship program, inaugurated in 2008, provides opportunities for individuals from outside the United States to visit the U.S. to learn more about dispute resolution processes and practices and to pursue a project of their own design that serves to advance the resolution of disputes in their home countries.

The JAMS Foundation Board of Directors will approve Fellowships of up to $25,000 in support of projects outlined by Fellowship applicants. This program is intended to be flexible and open to innovation, and applicants are encouraged to develop proposals that will increase the availability of dispute resolution education, training and services in their home countries and beyond.

During their time in the U.S., Fellows may be based in a JAMS Resolution Center or may participate in a university program or be connected to another organization or institution, depending on the nature of their project. Fellowships may be from one month to one year in duration.

It is anticipated that Fellows will come from countries that do not have an established culture of using mediation for cases in litigation. Part of the Fellows’ time in the United States will be spent observing how JAMS administers and resolves such cases.

Applicants must be fluent in English
Fellowship period must be one month to twelve months in duration
Preference for proposals that would help applicant’s home country establish viable dispute resolution systems or change how disputes are resolved

Hi Craig,
Thanks for keeping useful postings . i really am getting useful information your valuable knowledge services.
it is my inner feelings which could be shared with you . for me, it is always challenge to win a distant learning MA course . several times i was selected to follow course but was asked to pay huge amount in USD .

i would suggest that you can find good organizations who are based in South asia or South East asia , who are providing courses at accpetable fee for person like me to learn while working .

In reality , most of organizations; as based in US , Europe , getting visa for study purposes and meeting travelling expenses are difficult tasks .

hope you understand these practical problems which are preventing people like me to continue our work and study .

so it is my humble recommenddation to share posting on south globe organizations activities and programs on training , fellowships and study programs .

Thanks again .
