Overseas Development Institute (ODI) Fellowship Scheme 2022 for young professionals (Monthly Stipend plus accommodation allowance)

Jobs


The first three ODI fellows began their work in 1963. Since then, over 1,000 fellows have worked with over 50 governments and international organisations.

Fellowships are determined primarily by the needs of the scheme’s partner governments. 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 over the 59 years since it was established.
