Now in its 60th year, the ODI Fellowship Scheme has sent over 1,300 Fellows to more than 50 governments and international organisations.
The scheme gives early-career economists and statisticians the chance to work as civil servants on two-year contracts in low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Western Balkans, and the Pacific.
It provides host institutions with high-calibre professionals to fill pressing skills gaps while offering ODI Fellows the experience of working inside bureaucracies in a different country context to their own. Fellowships are determined primarily by the needs of the scheme’s partners.
The continued demand from governments for ODI Fellows, as well as the level of responsibility entrusted to them, is testament to the respect the scheme has earned since it was established.
NB: Participants are not required to register in advance. A link to stream the webinar will be available here on the day.
