Welcome to the Fall 2017 Application to the Professional Fellows Program for Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam!! The Mansfield Center of the University of Montana and the U.S. Department of State appreciate your interest in this program.

The YSEALI Professional Fellows Program is a professional development exchange program for the best and brightest community leaders from ASEAN, working in the fields of civic engagement, civil society development, economic empowerment, governance, legislative process, and environmental and natural resources management. The YSEALI Professional Fellows Program provides participants a month-long fellowship at U.S.-based non-profit organizations, government offices, legislative bodies, or private sector organizations. Fellows will work with community leaders to enhance their practical expertise, leadership skills and professional contacts to address issues in their home communities. 

YSEALI programs strengthen leadership development and networking in ASEAN, deepen engagement with young leaders on key regional and global challenges, and strengthen people-to-people ties between the United States and young Southeast Asian leaders. The YSEALI Professional Fellows Program is part of the broader Professional Fellows exchange program.
