      Dear friends and colleagues,

      In May 2007, the Weidenfeld Institute for Strategic Dialogue (WISD) had the
      pleasure of launching its Leadership Programme and Scholarship Scheme. The
      Weidenfeld Scholarships offer exceptional postgraduate students and young
      professionals primarily from Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Asia, North
      Africa and the Middle East the opportunity to pursue graduate studies at
      Oxford University and to participate in a comprehensive programme of
      leadership development, with access to senior figures from the public and
      private sectors.

      Following an intensive selection process, the 2007-2008 Weidenfeld
      Scholarships were awarded to seventeen extraordinary young people from
      twelve countries including Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Egypt, Kyrgyzstan
      and Lebanon, in a wide range of subjects ranging from Law and Finance to
      Environmental Management and Anthropology. The inaugural Weidenfeld Scholars
      commenced their graduate studies at Oxford in October 2007.

      The programme is expected to select up to 35 Scholars for the 2008-2009
      academic year. In our efforts to promote the Weidenfeld Scholarships and to
      widen the pool of candidates for 2008-2009, we are asking friends and
      colleagues around the world to circulate the attached information to
      relevant professional networks.

      We also now have limited places available for early to mid-career
      professionals in government and the civil service from the US, as well as
      from Western Europe.

      Enclosed please find additional information about eligibility and how to
      apply for the programme. [attachment deleted, moderator of BAN]

      Please keep in mind that the deadline for applications for academic year
      2008-2009 to the Weidenfeld Scholarships (as well as to most Oxford
      Departments) is January 18th, 2008.
