Government Analytics Fellowship

GAH fellowship banner

The World Bank Government Analytics Fellowship Program is a pioneering initiative designed to bridge the gap between the vast, yet underutilized, data resources held by governments and the potential for enhanced public administration efficiency through data-informed decision-making.

Leveraging insights from the Government Analytics Handbook and supported by World Bank experts and academics, the Fellowship offers frontier evidence and practitioner insights to enhance government efficiency. The Fellowship is a collaboration between the World Bank Development Economics Vice-Presidency (DEC) and the Governance Global Practice (GGP). 

The applications for the 2024 cohort are now closed.

Key Features

The fellowship will comprise a mix of in-person training and in-service support from senior experts at the World Bank and University College London to develop a Government Analytics project.

The fellowship spans 6 months, with a concentrated full-time commitment during the 2 weeks of in-person training in Washington, D.C., which includes the Public Administration Forum and Government Analytics course.
