World Bank Group Fellowship Program in the Africa Region

The first World Bank Group Fellowship Program in the Africa Region has just been launched. The Fellowship Program will further the Bank’s efforts to attract and build the capacity of local talent and the African Diaspora across the globe.

The program will target highly talented and promising Ph.D. candidates, African or of African descent, and the program will help the World Bank Group, and especially our Africa Region, to aggressively attract and recruit talent, with a special focus on the Diaspora communities.

Selected candidates will be offered a six-month assignment under the mentorship of a senior staff member.

The proposed Fellowship Program will have the mission to increase the pool of experts in the field of development and deepen our World Bank development impact. A formal assessment of the program and the fellows will be done at the end of the third year by a special committee.
