FELLOWSHIP- Central Eurasia Leadership Academy - CELA 2011, Istanbul, July 2011

Central Eurasia Leadership Academy (CELA)
Summer Workshop, Istanbul, 13-22 July 2011

CELA was launched in 2002 as a major initiative to bring together the region's most dynamic mid-career leaders in the fields of government, business, civil society and media; to offer them the best leadership education available; and to create a regional cooperation network organization second to none in this part of the world. Now in its tenth year, CELA has grown into the region's premier network organization linking some 300 next-generation leaders and change agents across nine countries.

CELA is now accepting applications to its summer 2011 Leadership Workshop at Koз University, Istanbul. Forty-five outstanding individuals will attend a ten-day leadership  event that will be intensive, challenging, and fun. It is important to emphasize that this is NOT a one-time training, but the gate to active membership in the CELA organization - a network of talent with global reach. CELA is a bridge to its partner the Society of International Business Fellows (SIBF) and its sister organization, the newly-launched Middle East Leadership Academy (MELA). Together they incorporate a global network of over 800 company heads, civil society leaders and public servants from 25 countries.

CELA applicants must be between the ages of 28 and 42. They must be citizens of one of the following countries: Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan. The professional sectors targeted in 2011 are business, government, NGOs/ civil society and media. There is a $100 annual membership fee for CELA, which will be collected in Istanbul at the summer workshop. Otherwise, costs associated with the CELA 2011 Leadership Workshop for those invited to attend (tuition, food and accommodation in Istanbul, and economy-class transport from the participant's home country) are borne by CELA.

English is the language of instruction during the CELA workshop. For more information, a course description, and an application form, please visit the CELA website:

The deadline for applications is Monday 31 January 2011.
