GALINA STAROVOITOVA FELLOWSHIP


The Galina Starovoitova Fellowship on Human Rights and Conflict Resolution was established following U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's 25 January 1999 speech in Moscow in which she announced funding for a memorial fellowship at the Kennan Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in honor of Galina Starovoitova. The Fellowship is funded and administered in cooperation with the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and the Public Affairs office of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.


Galina Starovoitova was a leading human rights advocate and a deputy in the Russian lower house of parliament (Duma). She won her Duma seat from St. Petersburg in Russia's December 1995 legislative elections. Starovoitova served in the Congress of Peoples' Deputies during 1989-91 and was a presidential advisor on ethnic relations until 1992. She was a co-founder of the Democratic Russia movement. In 1989, Galina Starovoitova was a visiting scholar at the Kennan Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. She was also a fellow in the Jennings Randolph fellowship program at the United States Institute for Peace during 1993-94, where she completed research on self-determination movements in the former Soviet Union, and a visiting professor at Brown University.


In keeping with both the legacies of Woodrow Wilson and Galina Starovoitova, the Starovoitova Fellowship is available to scholars, policy makers, journalists, civic activists, and other engaged persons who successfully bridge the worlds of ideas and public affairs to advance human rights and conflict resolution. Possible research areas include:


  1. rule of law issues

  2. human rights

  3. ethnic, religious, racial and cultural policies

  4. conflict resolution

  5. development of democratic institutions

  6. promotion of civil society

  7. development of civic education and related cultural issues

  8. nation-building

  9. nationalism and xenophobia

  10. tolerance

  11. the free press


Applicants with substantial experience from a wide variety of backgrounds (including academia, government, the corporate world, the professions, NGOs, the media) are eligible for appointment. All applicants require a working knowledge of English. For academic participants, eligibility is limited to the postdoctoral level, and normally it is expected that academic candidates will have demonstrated their scholarly development by publication beyond the Kandidat dissertation. For other applicants, an equivalent level of professional achievement is expected.


Under the terms of the grant, the Galina Starovoitova Fellowship offers a monthly stipend, research facilities, word processing support, and research assistance. Grant recipients are required to be in residence at the Kennan Institute in Washington, D.C. for the duration of their grant. The Starovoitova Fellows are expected to hold public lectures on the themes of conflict resolution and human rights while conducting research on a specific topic. In addition, the Starovoitova Fellow will actively participate in discussions with the public policy and academic communities, including giving speeches and lectures at other institutions and taking part in meetings and conferences.


The Kennan Institute will hold one round of competitive selection for two (a six month and a three month) Starovoitova Fellowships in the 2011-2012 program year. The deadline for the submission of applications and supporting material is April 15, 2011. Decision on appointment will be made in May 2011; interviews will take place in early June 2011; the Fellowship can be commenced as early as September 2011.

Name of Applicant______________________


To the Reviewer:


The person named above has applied for the Galina Starovoitova Fellowship at the Kennan Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. This fellowship program was first announced by the U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright in Moscow on January 25, 1999. In keeping with the legacy of Galina Starovoitova, the Starovoitova Fellowship is available to prominent scholars or policy makers from the Russian Federation who have successfully bridged the worlds of ideas and public affairs to advance human rights and conflict resolution. Each year, a Starovoitova Fellow is chosen to be in residence at the Kennan Institute to conduct research on projects related to those fields.


The applicant has identified you as one of the three individuals who are familiar with the applicant’s work and qualifications and who would be asked to comment specifically on the proposed study and the applicant’s ability to undertake it.


We would appreciate receiving from you a full and candid evaluation both of the candidate and of the proposed study project. The basic criteria for selection of scholars are: 1) the importance and originality of the project to the fields of human rights and conflict resolution (the quality of the project proposal and the degree to which the key questions have been identified and a promising approach outlined), 2) the applicant’s scholarly capabilities, achievement, and the ability to accomplish the proposed project, and 3) the likelihood that the work, when completed, will advance basic understanding of the topic under study and represent a substantial contribution to the body of knowledge about it.


You should also be aware that the Kennan Institute and the Wilson Center strive to encourage active scholarly dialogue and exchange of views and perspectives among fellows and between them and the public at large. While working on their projects, fellows are also members of an intellectual community who are encouraged to participate in the institutional life of the Wilson Center in both formal and informal ways, ranging from informal conversations to involvement in the Center’s meetings, colloquia, and conferences. It is with this background in mind that we ask for your opinion as to whether the applicant would contribute to the community life of the Institute and of the Center as a whole.


Please send your letters of recommendation by the deadline of April 15 directly to the Kennan Moscow Office. Letters of recommendation are crucial to the evaluation process, and we, no less than the candidates themselves, appreciate the care and attention that you will have devoted to the matter.


Sincerely,

Blair A. Ruble

Director
