Exchange Fellowship Scheme

The Exchange Fellowship Scheme supports collaboration between the Academy and policy makers and practitioners in the public, voluntary and private sectors. The Scheme gives Fellows access to University resources including academic and research staff, seminars, research groups and library resources. Fellows remain in their current employment, and typically commit 2-3 days a month to collaboration with a University-based colleague.  While projects vary widely, the goal of an Exchange Fellowship is to carry out research that directly informs the work of individuals and organisations while developing institutional links between research, policy and practice.

If your work aligns with the mission and research themes of the Academy of Government and you’re excited by the opportunity of working with us, just get in touch with Richard Freeman to discuss what you'd like to do.
