The Echidna Global Scholars Program is a visiting fellowship at the Center for Universal Education that aims to catalyze the work of nonprofit leaders, academics and policymakers from developing countries. Echidna Global Scholars spend four and a half months in Washington from August through mid-December pursuing research on global education issues, with a specific focus on improving learning opportunities and outcomes for girls. Upon completion of their fellowship the scholars implement a project that builds on the research conducted during their residency. Echidna scholars also participate in training and networking opportunities. Applicants should have a background in education, development, economics, or a related area, with at least 15 years of professional experience in either research/academia; non-government and civil society; government; or business.
