Candidates for the Fellowship are expected to have both a record of significant professional achievement and a desire to share their perspectives on global development with a broader international audience. The Fellowship is open by nomination only.
The Fellowship is recruiting a total of 25 Fellows for 2019. They are looking for 15 Fellows who are development experts in fields such as food security, global health, development economics, health and human rights, and climate change. They are also looking for 10 Fellows who are experts working on the frontlines of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
While the fellowship is non-resident and not full-time, it does require a significant and sustained time commitment as fellows write opinion articles, participate in interviews with local and international media, and speak at international conferences.
