The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has appointed Political Science Professor Landry Signé to evaluate applications for the prestigious 2015-16 Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program. This is an outstanding recognition of Professor Signé's global contribution to the study and practice of democracy.
The National Endowment for Democracy is dedicated "to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world," receiving each year funding from the U.S. Congress to support more than 1,000 projects to advance democracy abroad in more than 90 countries.
Named in honor of former president Ronald Reagan and late congressman Dante Fascell, its main founders, the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellowship Program is an exchange program that "supports democratic activists, scholars and journalists from around the world to undertake independent research on democratic challenges worldwide."
