The Fellowship is open to candidates from all academic disciplines, but preference will be given to those with an interest in the application of the social, political, economic, environmental or technological sciences to the analysis and resolution of substantial policy issues at the national or regional levels.
Since the prime purpose of the Fellowship is to consolidate links with a variety of institutions, it is expected that candidates from the same country are unlikely to be selected in successive years.
