About The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) Fellowship Scheme

The first three ODI fellows began their work in 1963. Since then, over 1,000 fellows have worked with over 50 governments and international organizations.

Fellowships are determined primarily by the needs of the scheme’s partner governments. The continued demand from governments for ODI fellows, as well as the level of responsibility entrusted to them, is a testament to the respect the scheme has earned over the 59 years since it was established.

Requirements Of The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) Fellowship Scheme 2022

  • The ODI Fellowship scheme is open to candidates of all nationalities and we support and encourage applications from LGBTQ+ and disabled candidates.

  • Suitable specialized qualifications at the postgraduate level include but aren’t limited to agricultural economics, environmental economics, international economics, health economics, development economics, and econometrics and statistics.
  • For those studying for a postgraduate degree at the time of application, the award of a fellowship is conditional upon the successful completion of the postgraduate degree.

Benefits Of the ODI Fellowship Scheme

  • Fellows gain valuable experience as civil servants. They learn about their host country, its policy landscape, and public service delivery in low- and middle-income countries, as well as the challenges of receiving aid from bi- and multilateral donors. They gain new technical skills as they work with colleagues to fill skills gaps. This experience is a unique opportunity for economists and statisticians and is highly
    valued by fellows and their future employers. International exchange
  • ODI fellowships are also an opportunity for international exchange and lesson sharing between civil servants: some ODI fellows bring the experience of other civil services and many more go on to work in large bureaucracies, either at home or in
    third countries. Future career opportunities
  • The scheme enjoys an excellent reputation and fellows benefit from the prestige associated with the scheme. ODI fellows have gone on to build successful careers in the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations, academia, the private business sector, and non-governmental organizations as well as their own country governments. Many choose to stay in the country of their fellowship.
