ICCA Launches Johnny Veeder Fellowship Programme

In memory of former ICCA Advisory Board Member V.V. “Johnny” Veeder, Q.C., ICCA is delighted to announce the launch of a fellowship programme in Johnny’s honour. The mission of the ICCA Johnny Veeder Fellowship 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.


The ICCA Executive Body has appointed a Johnny Veeder Fellowship Selection Committee to evaluate applications and award Fellowship funds annually. The 2022/2023 Committee will be composed of:

  • Lucy Reed (chair)
  • Marie Veeder (honorary member)
  • Lindsay Gastrell
  • Toby Landau
  • Loretta Malintoppi
  • Sam Wordsworth




To fund the Fellowships, the ICCA President is seeking contributions from 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.


For more information on how to donate, please visit the Fellowship Programme page.


Please note that the Programme is not yet open for applications. ICCA intends to announce the opening of applications for the Johnny Veeder Fellowships at the XXVth Congress in Edinburgh in September 2022.
