NATO-EAPC Research Fellowships Programme

The NATO Fellowship Programme was introduced in 1956 for citizens of NATO countries. In recent years, it has been updated to include candidates from both member countries and co-operation partners. The aim of this Programme, called since 1997 NATO Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (NATO-EAPC) Fellowships, is to promote study and research leading to publication in areas of particular interest to the Organization, primarily Alliance security and political issues.

This year the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is pleased to announce the award of 33 fellowships to citizens of EAPC member nations (see attached list for the names of the winning candidates).

At their Spring 1995 meeting, NATO Foreign Ministers established the Manfred Wörner Fellowship. The purpose of this distinguished Fellowship, endowed with BEF 800,000., is to honour the memory of this former Secretary General of NATO by focusing attention on his leadership in the transformation of the Alliance, including initiatives to develop NATO's relations with Central and Eastern European countries and promoting the principles and progress of the transatlantic relationship. This year, the Manfred Wörner Fellowship has been awarded to to Dr Ionel Nicu Sava, of Romania. Dr Sava, from the Manfred Wörner Euro-Atlantic Association Romania in Bucharest, is a lecturer in the Sociology of the Military and International Relations and Executive Manager of the Omega Publishing House. He has undertaken to work on a project titled " The Role of Western (NATO/PfP) Assistance to build Democratic Civil-Military Relations in South Eastern Europe - The Case of Romania, Bulgaria and Slovenia ".

For the second year NATO has established Institutional Fellowships for the Mediterranean Dialogue countries. The Atlantic Alliance is pleased to announce that two such fellowships have been awarded, one to Algeria and the other to Egypt.
