Ford Foundation Mason Fellows

The Ford Foundation Mason Fellowship will be awarded every year to meritorious Mason Fellows with financial need. Leading candidates will demonstrate strong interest in the overarching issues of concern to the Ash Center: improving democratic institutions and public participation; transparency and information disclosure; public sector innovations; improving urban and municipal governance; and political and social development in Asia. Leading candidates will also demonstrate the capacity for leadership in the public sector and a commitment to the study and implementation of effective and innovative governance, including non-traditional approaches to civic and political development.

This fellowship will cover full tuition and is open to all Mason Fellows. Fellowship recipients will be expected to join the Ash Center in co-curricular activities such as lectures, workshops, and conferences.
