THE AMERICAN Fund for Czech and Slovak Leadership Studies is financing short-term executive training programmes for young Czech and Slovak leaders in the areas of health care, education and environmental protection.

Applicants develop their own tailor-made programme by combining executive training at top universities and a professional internship in leading organisations in the United States. The Fund covers the full cost of the programme. Applicants must have at least five years of professional experience in the field; a BA degree or higher; fluent English; support from their employer; and recognition from professional peers. The programme must be completed within a six-month period in the United States. The applicants and their US host institution will determine the specific arrangements. The American Fund will cooperate with the Czech and Slovak Fulbright Commissions to ensure equal opportunity, academic and professional excellence and an impeccable ethical code of conduct. The deadline for 2008 applications is March 31, 2008. The Czech and Slovak Fulbright Commissions will screen the applications, and hold interviews in April 2008. The programme is scheduled to begin by July 2008. For more information, visit http://www.fulbright.sk/ponuky.htm or http://www.afcsls.org/.
