EDVACAY Fellowship

Encouraging Democratic Values and Active Citizenship among Youth.

EDVACAY Fellowship is a ten month long program with the goal of training young activists from Bosnia and Herzegovina, introducing them to democracy and human rights challenges, encouraging them to employ critical thinking on sensitive topics, and building their communications, presentation, and research skills.

10 years of the NED supported EDVACAY Fellowship


The ten-month long program has the goal of transferring knowledge on democratic principles and human rights, stimulating critical thinking about sensitive issues and encouraging the development of communication and research skills of participants.

The initiative includes a nine day in-person training; individual research projects on democracy-related issues; a group project resulting in four civic campaigns; and a final debate tournament for the participants.

With this program, we are targeting students who have little to no experience in non-formal education, volunteer work or NGO engagement. EDVACAY has been running since 2012 with the generous support of the National Endowment for Democracy.
