Lazord Fellowship 2019-2020
Call for Applications for Fellows

If you are a visionary leader, who aims to generate ideas for social change in areas such as education, women’s rights, social entrepreneurship, youth, corporate engagement, and human rights, we encourage you to apply!

Program description:

The Lazord partners are pleased to announce the opening of applications to become a 2019- 2020 Lazord Fellow. As a Lazord Fellow, you would be joining a multi-dimensional program that seeks to empower its fellows to develop a critical understanding of civic engagement, and to improve their leadership and technical skills for their future careers in all sectors. The program achieves its mission through offering mentoring, providing job opportunities in organizations striving to advance the common good, and creating enriched educational opportunities.

The first Lazord Fellowship began in Egypt in 2010. It currently has chapters in Egypt, Jordan, and Tunisia, working with over 50 organizations. The fellowship is a yearlong regional program that includes a chance for the chapters and fellows in Egypt, Jordan, and Tunisia to meet all together twice a year. After a competitive recruitment effort, fellows are selected in each of the 3 countries and placed for one year in a local organization. The fellows receive trainings provided by the local Lazord representatives as well as mentorship to help them realize their full potential as responsible leaders.

Fellows will:

  • be hosted for one year in a local non-profit or for-profit organization as a full-time employee;
  • receive a living stipend (based on local living costs) and a modest housing stipend (based on the fellow’s placement and needs);
  • be offered a minimum of 15 training sessions by influential civil society leaders and professional trainers on an array of topics pertaining to civil society, project management, leadership, team building, business skills, and much more;
  • receive monthly mentoring sessions with professional mentors with civil society experience;
  • have networking opportunities with professionals and influential individuals from all sectors – both local and international;
  • attend the annual opening and closing international conferences with the regional cohort of fellows from all 3 countries.
