The GEM Report Fellowship programme, supported by OSF, aims to strengthen the evidence base on comparative and international education and reinforce the links between research, policy, and practice in education. It offers an opportunity to be part of a select group of researchers and scholars who are advancing knowledge in this field, while working with the GEM Report team. The 2021 Fellowship Programme is the third round and the new fellows will join this growing community.

 

The GEM Report Fellowship programme will support academic researchers and research-oriented policy makers to carry out studies in the area of international and comparative education with a special focus on:

  • utilizing the GEM Report’s data resources, notably those household and school surveys linked to the World Inequality in Education database, to strengthen analyses of global, regional and national education trends on issues of access, equity, inclusion and quality;
  • strengthening the content of the GEM Report with respect to its coverage of important issues at the global, regional and national level, through evidence-based analyses of education policy and practice;
  • advancing the SDG 4 monitoring agenda, especially on issues related to the global and thematic indicator framework that have been highlighted in previous reports;
  • supporting the themes of forthcoming GEM reports, i.e. the 2023 report on technology.

 

Recipients of a fellowship will have the opportunity to work with the GEM Report team’s specialists, one of the world’s leading teams in this field, to conduct research and analysis of education data with a primary focus on SDG 4, the global education goal. The fellowships will help build new skills and deepen the participants’ capacity, while also sharing their experience and knowledge with the team as well as, where possible, with regions and countries. Learning from their experience with the team, the fellows will also be able to participate in and influence the work of the GEM Report.

 

The work will be carried out remotely. Each fellowship will last between 6 and 11 months, depending on the work to be carried out. The GEM Report team will provide:

  • A stipend (up to US$19,500) for the duration of the fellowship (up to 11 months).
  • A mentor from the team of GEM Report researchers. The GEM Report staff will allocate 2-3 hours per week to remotely mentor and guide the fellows.
