The Think Tank Initiative has teamed up with On Think Tanks to launch a Fellowship Programme for emerging young leaders!

The OTT-TTI Fellowship Programme will bring together promising young leaders from research organizations supported by the Think Tank Initiative (TTI) to cultivate and strengthen their leadership skills. Over the course of this 9-month program, Fellows will:

  • Be given the opportunity to network with an outstanding cohort of mentors and leaders from the think tank world;
  • Sharpen their management and leadership capabilities;
  • Exchange lessons and experiences with a diverse cohort of peers from across South Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and South America; and,
  • Unlock their potential to shape the future of think tanks around the world!

The Fellowship Programme will require hard work and dedication from the chosen participants, as Fellows will be expected to regularly document their progress and learning by producing regular articles for the OTT website and participating in interviews throughout the process.

The deadline for applications to the Fellowship Programme is September 7, 2018. Applicants must be currently working with a TTI supported think tank; have a leadership or management role within a project, team or programme; and have an interest in improving their leadership skills.
