The successful applicants of this Echidna Global Scholarship will be awarded monthly living stipend up to $5,000 plus other benefits. The closing date of application is November 13 2017.
The Echidna Global Scholars Program fits within the broader Global Compact on Learning work stream by aligning the research plans of the Echidna scholars with a collaborative research agenda. During their four-and-a-half month residency at The Brookings Institution, Echidna scholars will work with the Center staff on developing their specific research project and may then work with the Brookings communications team to develop a strategy for policy impact. Echidna scholars will also participate in training and networking opportunities. Echidna scholars will draw on the resources of Brookings’ scholars, as well as the extended public policy community in Washington, D.C. by participating in additional meetings and conferences and networking with the broader development community.
Each of the winners of the Echidna Global Scholarship may expect to receive a living stipend of USD $5,000 a month (subject to U.S. tax withholding), paid housing for the four-and-a-half month term, and round-trip travel expenses.
