Interested scholars and practitioners should send a letter of intent and a brief description of their research project to the Programme through this form .
Scholars in residence
Each year, the Programme welcomes one scholar to teach a course and pursue their research agenda while in residence.
The programme also invites at least one of the Global South scholars in residence at the Graduate Institute to pursue their research under the auspices of the Programme for the Study of International Governance.
Visiting post-doctoral scholars
Each year, one promising post-doctoral scholar is selected to spend 12 months at the Programme through a funded visiting post-doctoral position.
Visiting associate research scholars
Space in residence is also reserved for a select number of scholars who secure their own funding and who are interested in affiliating with research projects and scholars at the Programme while they conduct their thesis and/or field research in Geneva.
Policy practitioners in residence
The Programme welcomes select individuals with careers in the UN or Member States to spend a specified period in residence working on an independent research project, or in collaboration with one of the Programme’s research projects. These visitors are funded by the institutions they work for.
