ICCA Johnny Veeder Fellowship Programme

V V VeederIn memory of former ICCA Advisory Board Member V.V. “Johnny” Veeder, Q.C., ICCA has launched the ICCA Johnny Veeder Fellowship Programme. The mission of the Programme is to celebrate and perpetuate Johnny’s contributions to ICCA and especially to the advancement of young, new and diverse international arbitration practitioners and academics. 

 

The Johnny Veeder Fellowships will provide financial assistance in the form of “micro-grants” of EUR 1,000 to 2,500 to allow qualified recipients to pursue study, internships, research and writing projects or other one-off projects in the field of international arbitration. Fellowships will be awarded to one to five applicants per calendar year in the early stages of their professional and academic careers (whatever their age) who show the interest and dedication necessary to make significant contributions to the use and study of international arbitration or mediation or other forms of dispute resolution, particularly in developing jurisdictions. By awarding these grants, ICCA seeks to further its mission of promoting the use and improving the process of arbitration, conciliation and other forms of international dispute resolution. 

 

Donations

 

To fund the Fellowships, the ICCA President is seeking contributions from ICCA Governing Board and Advisory Board members, ICCA members and friends, and other supporters of Johnny. ICCA Foundation, Inc. has made available initial seed funding in the amount of EUR 20,000 to match contributions.

ICCA intends to announce the opening of applications for the Johnny Veeder Fellowships at the XXVth Congress in Edinburgh in September 2022. Further details on how to apply for the Fellowships will be shared when the first application cycle opens after the Congress.
