      The 2004 cohort application deadline for the Professional Exchange for
      Applied Knowledge (PEAK) fellowship is August 25th and the University of
      Michigan is recruiting early-career African professionals that work at local
      NGOs who would benefit from this opportunity for professional development
      and institutional capacity building.

      Interested parties can contact the PEAK program directly for further
      information or to request an application by e-mailing them at
      peak_fellows@...

      PEAK aims to build the capacity of developing country professionals and
      organizations to offer leadership in the fields of family planning,
      reproductive health, and population-environment. The centerpiece of this
      initiative is a four to six-month individualized fellowship designed to
      build relevant skills among early-career professionals from sub-Saharan
      Africa and Latin America. The initiative also supports capacity building
      activities for the organizations from which the fellows come, including
      workshops and seed grants for applied projects. The fellowship has
      alternated between two regions each year, focusing on either Latin America
      (2001, 2003) or Africa (2002, 2004).

      You may learn more about the PEAK fellowship's timing, requirements and
      profiles of past and current fellows on the website:

      The PEAK newsletter (also on the website) has more detailed profiles of
      fellows, their NGOs, as well as articles on how Population and PE fellows
