*e-Academy seminars are divided into three phases. In the first part, participants are given materials to read to deepen their knowledge. In the second part, they are encouraged to discuss via an online forum their views and insights. Lastly, participants will be asked to write an essay.

The seminars do not require participants to be online at all times. They have the flexibility to work at their own pace provided they meet the deadlines assigned to each task.

Based on their contribution, IAF will invite 22-26 participants to Gummersbach, Germany to continue the discussions raised online.

Application procedure: 

Please download application form and send completed application to application@fnst.org. Please note that FNF will only correspond with short listed candidates. 

FNF Philippines can only evaluate applications of Filipinos. If you are not a Filipino, please contact the FNF office in your country or region. Please view the different FNF locations here: http://www.fnst.org.
