New UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report Fellowship

A new UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report Fellowship programme has just been launched thanks to the support of the Open Society Foundations. The Fellowship aims to strengthen the evidence base on comparative education.

The first call for fellowships is online with applications expected by September 28. Such calls will be issued twice a year with the aim of hosting an average of three fellows per year in the team. Fellowships will typically provide or contribute to the funding for fellows to conduct their research and build their networks for one year, of which at least one month would be spent at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. 

Based on the successful model of the Thomas J. Alexander Fellowships at the OECD, the GEM Report Fellowship programme will support academic researchers and research-oriented policy makers to carry out studies in the area of international and comparative education with a special focus on:

  • utilizing the GEM Report’s data resources, notably those household and school surveys linked to the World Inequality in Education database, to strengthen analyses of global, regional and national education trends on issues of access, equity, inclusion and quality;
  • strengthening the content of the GEM Report with respect to its coverage of important issues at the regional and national level, through evidence-based analyses of educational policy and practice;
  • helping advance the SDG 4 monitoring agenda, especially on issues related to the global and thematic indicator framework that have been highlighted in previous reports; and
  • supporting the themes of forthcoming GEM reports, i.e. inclusive education in 2020(including a special focus on (i) disability (ii) Latin America) and the role of non-state actors in education in 2021.

The fellowships are open to exceptional individuals who have quantitative research skills, demonstrate a potential for transformational impact in their domain, and share a commitment to provide more people with better educational opportunities. Learning from their experience with the team, the fellows will also be able to participate in and influence the work of the GEM Report. A stipend of up to $25,000 for the duration of the fellowship and full travel costs for at least one month to be spent in Paris will be provided to each of the fellows.

Please share the news with your networks and visit the online call for proposals to find out more.
