Fellowship Scheme

The Partnership conducts Fellowship Schemes to bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners to create opportunities for knowledge exchange.

The Fellowship Scheme is an evidence-based model for collaboration that establishes lasting relationships built on shared purpose.

As part of the scheme, policy makers and practitioners meet with expert researchers to discuss current policy challenges and how these challenges might be addressed through research. Fellows are encouraged to make ongoing use of the networks they establish.

While the Fellowship Scheme is intended for policy makers and practitioners in government, representatives from the third sector could also benefit from the scheme.

If you are a policy maker or practitioner and would like to take part in a Fellowship Scheme with the Partnership please contact the External Champion.
