TIMEP’s fellowship programs are an investment in the future. They provide early and mid-career voices with a space to develop solutions-oriented, forward-thinking analysis; access to a global network of like-minded individuals and organizations; connectivity to policymakers; and targeted skill building opportunities. The Bassem Sabry Democracy Fellowship gives rising stars the opportunity to spend six months at TIMEP’s Washington, D.C. office; while the Nonresident Fellowship supports the critical work of those on the ground.
Established in memory of the late Egyptian political writer and commentator Bassem Sabry, the Bassem Sabry Democracy Fellowship is awarded to a young professional who is committed to the principles of democratic and inclusive change: values that Sabry promoted and espoused during his lifetime.
TIMEP’s Nonresident Fellowship program supports advocates, scholars, and analysts based on the ground in the MENA region or with significant ties to the region whose work advances the accountable, transparent, and just societies that TIMEP is committed to fostering.
