Fletcher Summer Institute
Every summer The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, in coordination with the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, brings together 45 mid-career executives for The Fletcher Summer Institute for the Advanced Study on Nonviolent Conflict; an intensive week-long course on the theory and practice of civil resistance.
Tavitian Scholarship Program
The Fletcher School, in collaboration with the Tavitian Foundation, conducts the Tavitian Scholarship Program, a six-month training program for Armenian mid-career professionals. Each program brings fifteen young Armenian professionals from similar governmental agencies to The Fletcher School. With the completion of the thirteenth program in the spring of 2012 there are now over 200 graduates of the program, holding mid‐level and senior positions within the foreign ministry, the trade ministry, the central bank, and prominent legal institutions within Armenia. The early focus of the program was on developing diplomatic skills to enable the young Republic to forge relations with other nations. The focus of the program more recently has been on encouraging business development, and helping Armenia achieve steady growth of real GDP per capita, and development of the telecom, software, banking and tourist industries. The program has also helped to bridge the development gap between the US and the South Caucasus region, bringing increased understanding and cooperation.
