   Dear ELLers,
   There is an interesting program at Yale that brings "early mid
career" leaders from around the world to Yale for four months as
"World Fellows."  The goal is to broaden the international community
by providing contacts among people involved in decision-making at a
high level.  "It offers a group of emerging leaders from diverse
countries and cultures the opportunity to broaden their knowledge,
gain new perspectives, sharpen their skills, and build the networks
of relationships needed to meet the demands of issues on the local,
national, and global scales."
   Previous fellows have mostly come from the worlds of government,
policy and industry.  It would be great if we could include language
activists in the mix.  If any of you know of a good possibility, I
would be happy to help with the application process.  The first
requirement is that the applicant not be a US citizen; then, they
must be established in their career but early in it, so it is usually
people in their 30's or early 40's.
   Please see their web site for some more details:
