Fully Funded UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Fellowship Program in France, 2021.

In partnership with OSI, the GEM Report Fellowship program aims to increase the evidence base on education, particularly in developing countries, increase research capacity in education, and strengthen the links between research, policy, and practice in education.
