EUI School of Transnational Governance Policy Leader Fellowship 2022/23

The European University Institution (EUI) calls for applications from early and mid-career policy practitioners from around the world to its 2022/2023 policy leadership fellowship.

The Policy Leader Fellowship is a global program for early and mid-career policy practitioners from around the world to enhance their work and professional skills, whilst participating in workshops, training, skills development sessions, conferences, and other events. In addition, they get the chance to interact with other fellows, policy-makers, and the academic community at the EUI.

The fellowships last for five (fixed term in the first or second semester) or ten months (a fixed term from September to the end of June). The candidates can indicate their preference when applying, but once selected for a specific start date and period, no changes or extensions can be granted. 

Fellows who come to Florence for five months give a presentation of their work in progress to the School of Transnational Governance (STG) community and later to a broader policy audience; produce at least one publication; may contribute to the School’s training program, and engage in EUI seminars and workshops with other stakeholders. Fellows who stay for the whole academic year are expected to work on major transnational projects with the potential of breakthrough, having a substantial ‘multiplier’ effect in the given policy field, often in collaboration with other organizations.


The EUI School of Transnational Governance Policy Leader Fellowship covers:

  • The basic grant is € 2,500 per month.
  • The fellowship provides a maximum travel reimbursement amount of €1,200 including both incoming and outgoing trips.
  • A household allowance of up to € 300 per month will be paid to a Fellow with a partner if the partner lives with him /her in Florence and on the condition that the partner’s income is less than € 2,000 per month.

  • 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’ effect after the fellowship.
