The Africa Region of the World Bank Group is relaunching its fellowship program for Ph.D. students who are Sub-Saharan nationals. Fellows will spend a minimum of six months at the World Bank offices in Washington, D.C. or in a Sub-Saharan country, getting hands-on experience in development work. While benefiting from research and innovation in multiple sectors, fellows will also work on economic policy, technical assistance, and lending for eliminating poverty and increasing shared prosperity. The program invites applications from Sub-Saharan nationals who are recent Ph.D. graduates, or current doctoral students within one or two years of completing or graduating from a Ph.D. program, in disciplinary fields that include agriculture, energy, and others. The deadline for the first round of applications is 30 September 2016.
