ODI Fellowship Scheme

Providing capacity, promoting careers: our Fellowship Scheme gives postgraduate economists and statisticians the opportunity to work in the public sectors of developing countries as local civil servants.

The ODI Fellowship Scheme has two objectives: to provide developing country governments with high-calibre junior economists and statisticians where there are gaps in local capacity; and to give postgraduate economists and statisticians practical work experience in a developing country.

Over the past 50 years, we have sent more than 1,000 economists on two-year postings to more than 40 countries across Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific. The Scheme is demand-led by developing country governments, which share the costs with ODI.
