Applications are now open for the World Bank Robert S. McNamara Fellowships Program (RSMFP)!
Fellows will be hosted at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. for 8 months (September to May each year) and work under the supervision of researchers in the World Bank’s Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) and Development Research Group departments.
They will have a unique opportunity to participate in rigorous policy-relevant research and widen their perspective on potential development questions, and how their research can address challenges in the developing world.
The RSMFP offers competitive compensation, totaling $42,750 net of income taxes per fellow for an 8-month fellowship (paid in monthly installments).
Also, the World Bank’s HR Operations unit will assist the selected candidates with their application for a G4 visa.
However, the fellowship does not cover travel expenses.
Fellows will write a blog based on their fellowship research within DEC. This is an opportunity to showcase their research and contribution to development policy discussions. Each year, the top 4 blogs will be published on DEC’s Let’s Talk Development blog.
Applications for the fellowship are open annually between March and April for cohorts starting in September of the same year. Applicants must submit
You will get an evaluation for the fellowships based on application materials, knowledge of relevant economic methods, as well as demonstrated skills in required statistical software. Cohort formation will seek to achieve geographical and gender representation.
