The Policy Leader Fellowship is a global programme for early and mid-career policy practitioners from around the world to enhance their work and professional skills, whilst participating in workshops, trainings, 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 (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 programme, 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 organisations.

We welcome applications from anywhere in the world, regardless of nationality. EU citizenship is not required. There is no age limit. For further selection criteria, please see the selection procedure section.
The fellowships are for a duration of five or ten months between September 2022 and June 2023. Candidates should indicate their choices from the following options:
Fellows must reside in the area of Florence for the duration of their Fellowship so that they can take an active part in the activities of the EUI/STG and the fellowship programme (with the possibility of short visits outside Florence and Italy). The fellowship cannot be carried out remotely/online.
The basic grant is € 2,500 per month.
Successful applicants who receive other grants or salaries must disclose this to the EUI. The amount of the Fellowship will be fixed at a lower rate (minimum €1,750 per month) depending on the amount of the additional income (upon production of relevant supporting documents).
If applicable, family allowances will be added to the basic grant (see below).
Application Deadline, January 25, 2022
In the 2022/2023 academic year, STG plans to allocate approximately thirty fellowships. The programme can usually select around four to five percent of those who apply in any given year. All the applications are reviewed as long as they are submitted on time using the online platform.
