Weinstein International Fellowship Program 2014

Deadline: November 22, 2013

JAMS Foundation is accepting applications for the Weinstein International Fellowship. The program provides opportunities for qualified individuals from outside the United States to study dispute resolution processes and practices in the U.S. in order to advance the resolution of disputes in their home countries. The Fellowship Program is designed to be flexible and open to innovation, and applicants are encouraged to be creative in pursuing activities in the U.S. that will serve to expand the use of ADR in their home countries.

The JAMS Foundation will approve Fellowships of up to $20,000 in support of projects outlined by Fellowship applicants. This Program is intended for individuals who have demonstrated experience with and commitment to the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and who seek to increase the availability of dispute resolution education, training and services in their own countries and beyond.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants may not be citizens of the United States.
  • Applicants must be fluent in English.
  • Proposed Fellowship must be one month to four months in duration.
  • Preference for proposals that would help establish viable dispute resolution systems or change how disputes are resolved.
  • Preference for applicants with experience as judges, lawyers, law professors, court administrators, government officers, or ADR practitioners.
  • Preference for applicants able to commence their Fellowship with the annual gathering of Fellows in the San Francisco Bay area in early September 2014.
