Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP)  Research Fellowship 2024

The Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) Research Fellowship 2024 invites researchers based in low- and middle-income countries to apply to join the organisation as Research Fellows (RF).

PEP Research Fellows are senior, Southern-based scholars chosen through a competitive process to participate in critical PEP research, training, and policy activities. The PEP Research Fellows program aims to enhance links among South-based scholars so that they can collectively contribute a Southern viewpoint to the global development research agenda.

Research Fellow activities

The PEP Research Fellowship is a status of affiliation with PEP. It gives the Fellows the right to participate in various PEP activities, with remuneration/funding in some cases.

These activities include:

  • Contributing to PEP research programs.
  • Acting as a scientific or policy mentor/reviewer for a PEP-funded project, or contributing more generally to the design and implementation of PEP programs.
  • Contributing to PEP online or in-class training activities.
  • Contributing to the dissemination/visibility activities of PEP.
    • For example, at national and international conferences, and in blogs, newsletters, policy briefs/activities, X(previously Twitter) threads and LinkedIn/Facebook posts, etc.
  • Representing PEP at international conferences.
    • Funding may be available depending on research quality and the importance of the conference for researcher/PEP visibility and reputation.
  • Proposing new initiatives that fit within the strategic priorities of PEP where fundraising possibilities exist.
  • Submitting their research papers for publication in the PEP working paper series
  • Proposing and, if approved, implementing new activities within the RF program.
  • Option of being elected (by the assembly of RFs) to serve as a representative of the Research Fellows in PEP’s corporate membership at the annual PEP General Assembly
  • Participating in a South-based professional network to share skills, collaborate on research and dissemination initiatives, debate ideas, etc.
