The 2013-2015 Legislative Fellows Program (LFP-NA) brings emerging leaders from Egypt, Libya and Tunisia to the United States for an intensive one month fellowships designed to broaden their professional expertise. Fellows are placed in non-profit organizations and government offices in Washington, D.C. to learn first-hand how issues in their fields are addressed in the United States. While deepening their understanding of American society, visiting participants also build a broad network of American colleagues and the other visiting Fellows.
This two-year program supports young professionals from North Africa, builds capacity in local Civil Service Organizations (CSO), and strengthens mutual understanding of the legislative and policy making processes in all countries.
