Dear edequity subscribers:

I would like to share with you the professional development program
description which follows which I believe you will find of interest.
Briefly, the Worldwide Women in Development (WorldWID) Fellows
Program aims to increase incorporation of gender concerns into
international development programs, as well as institutions here at
home in the US with which the fellows are associated.

Please note that special attention is being focused on recruiting
Fellows from minority groups who have been traditionally
underrepresented in the administration of US foreign assistance
programs. I hope it piques your interest.

Andrea K. Freeman
Program Assistant, WorldWID

Worldwide Women in Development Fellows Program (WorldWID)
at the University of Florida

WorldWID is a one-year international development fellowship for
mid-career professionals with technical skills that can be applied to
U.S. foreign assistance programs, and who are interested in increasing
their knowledge and capacity to incorporate Gender-and-Development
(GAD) issues in their applied work. The program is for U.S.

WorldWID is especially interested in skills that relate to
USAID's strategic concerns: economic growth; democracy and
governance, including human rights; environment; girls' education; and
population, health, and nutrition.

The WorldWID fellowship year consists of a period of training and
orientation followed by placement in a USAID field mission. The program
matches applicants' skills with requests from different missions and
USAID-funded programs.

Timing of WorldWID Fellowships: The 1998-1999 WorldWID Fellows will
begin participation in the program in March of 1998. Fellows are
expected to depart for their field assignments approximately two
weeks after the closure of the Training and Orientation Programs.
The maximum participation for the entire fellowship is one year; the
minimum is seven months. For an additional E-mail description of this
program, please E-mail to the below E-mail address and state "E-mail
