Policy Leaders Fellowships
The School of Transnational Governance (STG) at the European University Institute (EUI) is offering fellowships to early- and mid- career policy professionals for the academic year 2019-2020.
The EUI is a unique international centre for research and teaching, situated in Florence, Italy. The School of Transnational Governance delivers teaching and high-level training in the methods, knowledge, skills and practice of governance beyond the state. The STG, founded in 2017, brings the worlds of academia and policy-making together in an effort to navigate a context, both inside and outside Europe, where policy-making increasingly transcends national borders. The STG Policy Leaders Fellowship is a global programme at a global institution.
The Policy Leaders Fellowship of the School of Transnational Governance provides a unique opportunity for policy professionals from around the world to further develop their policy work and professional skills whilst participating in workshops, training and skills development sessions, conferences and other events, in addition to interacting with the other fellows, policy makers and the academic community at the EUI. The fellowships last for 3, 6 or 9 months, and are fully-funded with a grant of € 2,500 per month. Fellows must live in the area of Florence for the duration of their fellowship. A family allowance is available where appropriate. The language of the programme is English.
Applicants should be:
- Early- or mid-career professionals (e.g. in politics, civil service, media and non-governmental organisations), able to demonstrate both professional experience and potential for future excellence in the policy sphere.
- Genuinely engaged individuals involved in policy issues, especially those related to transnational governance.
- Self-motivated, able to present a clear work plan for the fellowship to show what the applicant will achieve and how this work will have a ‘multiplier’ impact after the fellowship.
- Curious and engaged contributors. Fellows are expected to be part of the EUI community on a daily basis and to participate in peer discussions on topics which may be beyond their expertise.
- Fluent in written and spoken English.
The fellowship is open to applications from anywhere in the world, regardless of nationality. EU citizenship is not required. There is no maximum or minimum age limit.
The fellowships are for the duration of 3, 6 or 9 months between September 2019 and June 2020. Candidates should indicate their first and second choices from the following options:
- 3 months:
- September – November 2019
- January – March 2020
- April – June 2020
- 9 months:
- September 2019 – June 2020
- 6 months:
- January 2020 – June 2020.
Fellows must reside in the area of Florence for the duration of their Fellowship so that they can take an active part in the activities of the EUI and the fellowship programme. The programme may include some visits to institutions, experts and events outside Florence and Italy.
The basic grant is € 2,500 per month.
Successful applicants who receive other grants or salaries must disclose this to the EUI. The amount of the Fellowship will be fixed at a lower rate depending on the amount of the additional income (upon production of relevant supporting documents).
If applicable, family allowances will be added to the basic grant.
Application closes 22 February, 2019
