Applications for the 2020 Echidna Global Scholars Program are now open. The Echidna Global Scholars Program is a visiting fellowship hosted by the Center for Universal Education (CUE), within the Global Economy and Development program, at the Brookings Institution.
The Echidna Global Scholars Program (the Program) aims to build the research, analytical, and leadership skills of NGO leaders and academics who have substantial experience with and ties to developing countries, whose work has a specific focus on improving learning opportunities and outcomes for girls in the developing world. This position would be ideal for a candidate with 10-15 years of professional experience in a related field. Echidna Global Scholars spend four to six months at Brookings Institution in Washington D.C. The structure of the Program is divided into two main components to assist the scholars in having impact when returning to their home countries: research on global education issues, and leadership training.

Responsibilities

  • Once selected by CUE to participate in the Program and while still in their home countries, Echidna Global Scholars will be expected to dedicate time to collecting data for their research in preparation for their period of residency at Brookings in Washington, DC. During their residency from early June to mid-October 2020, Echidna Global Scholars will work with CUE staff to develop their specific research project and a strategy for policy impact. They will also participate in professional development training and networking opportunities.
  • Echidna Global Scholars will draw on the resources of other Brookings’ scholars, as well as the extended public policy community in Washington, D.C. by participating in additional meetings and conferences, and networking with the broader development community. The Program expects the Echidna Global Scholars to have the ability to interact with other Brookings scholars and the wider policy community; to conduct professional, in-depth research and deliver spoken presentations in English; and to work on an extensive, cutting-edge written research product during their residency, as well as a post-residency project proposal with the intent to implement their research in their home country upon completion of the program.

Benefits

  • Please note that this position is a short-term full-time resident fellowship at Brookings (it is not an employee position).
  • Applicants selected for the fellowship will receive a living stipend of USD $5,000 a month while in D.C. (subject to U.S. tax withholding and reporting), paid single-occupancy housing for the four-and-a-half-month term, round-trip travel expenses, and a limited health insurance plan.

Eligibility

  • The program selects professionals with substantial experience in and ties to developing countries, a demonstrated intent to return to a developing country after completing the period of residency at Brookings, and a passion and demonstrated commitment to girls’ education.
  • Applicants should have a background in education, development, economics, or a related area, with a minimum of 10 years of professional experience in either research/academia; non-government and civil society; government; or business.
  • Master’s degree required; Ph.D. or research background strongly preferred.
  • Strong analytical and writing skills. Successful applicants will have an intimate understanding of education development issues and gender.
  • Applicants who have not worked explicitly on girls’ education previously are welcome to apply, but should include an explanation of how this focus on girls’ education can be integrated successfully into their current and future work.

Requirements

  • Echidna Global Scholars must be available for a full-time, on-site affiliation with the Brookings Institution for the entire duration of the residency and must be able to complete the pre-arrival data collection phase of research.
  • Soon after selection, Echidna Global Scholars are required to conduct research on a topic approved by CUE staff.
  • Scholars will present their research papers at a day-long symposium hosted by Brookings at the end of the residency.
  • Each Scholar is expected to be an active participant in Brookings and CUE activities, including, but not limited to, regularly-scheduled organizational staff meetings, informal discussions, seminars, presentations, and other CUE and Brookings events.
