ALDA set up a scholarship in memory of its Honorary President Gianfranco Martini. 
University students and researchers can apply by 30 April for the 2014 edition. Focus of their study or project have to be the development of theoretical and practical strategies to promote local democracy, engagement of civil society and/or interethnic dialogue.
Further information about application form, candidates selection, projects selection, scholarship amount, can be found on the dedicated web page.
The successful candidate will be announced at the annual General Assembly of ALDA in June 2014, where the scholar will present the results of his or her study, which will be widely disseminated. 
Gianfranco Martini, who passed away in October 2012, was among the initiators of the concept of Local Democracy Agencies, and became the first President of ALDA when it was founded in 1999. Throughout his active life he passionately promoted local democracy, civic engagement, and interethnic dialogue, especially in Western Balkans.
