The world is shrinking fast, and social, economic and political interactions among countries and peoples are becoming more frequent. Meeting these challenges is more complicated today and requires a greater skill than perhaps at any other time in human history.
At ADA, we are motivated by a need to establish an outstanding education and training for our own citizens in Azerbaijan, but we know that our growing nation also has a responsibility to bring first-class international education and leadership training for others in the region and the world, and to promote intellectual inquiry on a wide range of topics. Therefore, ADA has launched a Fellowship program meant to prepare global leaders who have a strong commitment to serve a public cause.
The purpose of the fellowship is to:
prepare innovative leaders with vision and global perspective; encourage commitment to public service and further contribute to its development; actively participate in international human capacity enhancement efforts; enhance diversity of student body at ADA; promote further intellectual inquiry on international topics; help to strengthen bilateral relations between Azerbaijan and friendly countries.
Applicants should first be admitted into ADA. Only admitted and enrolled students in good academic standing are eligible for the Fellowship.
