Funded study visits for rising stars mentees
Pilot a next level of the mentorship program - scholarships for mentees to visit model programs. Award 5 scholarships through a competitive application, with each scholarship paying for travel for one government representative and one civil society representative to visit a model program that will inspire them to take action locally. Traveling to another city to see a program in action is one of the most effective ways to build political and community support. Require mentees to have completed at least 2 mentorship sessions to apply. This could help generate more interest in the mentorship program and add a next level that moves participants further along the pathway to policy change.
Expenses would include an average of $5,000 per scholarship (for travel, accommodation, per diem, and visas for 2 people), and staff time to administer the program.
Cost estimate: $30,000
