The ODI Fellowship is launched to give early-career economists and statisticians the chance to work as public sector civil servants. Fellows will be on a two-year contract located in countries like Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Western Balkans. The scheme provides host institutions in these countries with high-caliber professionals to fill pressing skills gaps, while offering Fellows the experience of working inside bureaucracies in a different country context to their own. 

What’s in it for you? 

Here’s what you can expect from ODI Fellowship. 

  1. Fellows work in a range of institutions from finance and planning ministries to ministries of health and education, as well as central banks, statistics offices, and regulatory bodies.
