Dear EDEQUITY subscribers,

I would like to supplement an announcement which I posted previously
to this e-list regarding the Worldwide Women in Development Fellows

News of the Fellowship has been extremely well received, both by
applicants and USAID missions (and USAID-funded programs abroad)
alike. In fact, many missions have expressed interested in hosting
and working with Fellows. Following is a list of some of the more
specific requests for Fellows that we have received from USAID field
missions. These potential placements IN NO WAY limit the candidacy
of those applicants whose areas of interest and specialization lie
outside these requests. We do realize that this second announcement
arrives with very short notice, as the application deadline is March
1, 1997. However, we just wanted to encourage potential applicants
to seriously consider this Fellowship opportunity, particularly if
their areas of expertise coincide with the following list of
requests and possibilities.

Should you have any questions regarding WorldWID and the placements,
please contact :
