Deadline: 28 June, 2020

Applications are open for the Peace First (PF) Fellow-in-Residence Programme 2020 in Sub-Saharan Africa and the MENA region. The programme is open to anyone in these locations between the ages of 18 and 25, who have led a successful social change project in their community, working alongside others towards a just and peaceful future.
