The Fellowship recruited a total of 20-25 Fellows for 2021. We recruited Fellows who are development experts in fields such as food security, global health, human rights, and climate change. For the 2021 class, we gave special consideration to Fellows whose work focuses on COVID-19 relief, vaccine development, and pandemic resiliency. We also recruited Fellows who are experts on the frontlines of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
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.
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. All expenses related to the fellowship are paid, including certain media-related travel costs.
PLEASE NOTE, this is not a fellowship for journalists or others trained and working in communications.
The nomination period ended on October 17, 2020 at 11:59PM EST.
