To apply for the program,
The Mo Ibrahim Foundation Academy Fellowship is a joint initiative between Chatham House and the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.
The Mo Ibrahim Foundation Academy Fellowship is a scheme in the Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs.
The program will involve seminars, coaching sessions, and visits.
Fellows will have the option to have an external career mentor during their fellowship. Mentors are independent of the Academy and Chatham House and are picked individually for each fellow based on their career objectives.
The deadline for application is 20th of September, 2020.
Selected Academy fellows will spend ten months at the Chatham House commencing from January 2021.
All Academy fellows will participate in, and contribute to, the Academy’s Leadership Program which consists of the following components:
The Academy fellowships will begin with an intensive five-day induction week at Chatham House for fellows to become familiarized with the elements of the fellowships and the Leadership Program, meet their host research program, and have their first personal development coaching session.
These sessions highlight the principal substantive and skills-based areas the Academy believes vital for informed and effective international leadership. Fellows are expected to contribute to and learn from one another’s experience.
These half-day visits take place approximately every two months and allow fellows to meet with leaders and senior decision-makers from a variety of sectors. Previous visits have included the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Department for International Development, Standard Chartered, and Thomson Reuters.
Every two months fellows will participate in half-day workshops focusing on specific aspects of leadership such as ‘Leadership in a new role’ and ‘Fostering innovation and entrepreneurship’
Fellows will present updates on their research projects which help them and other fellows develop presentation skills, provide a valuable forum for peer-review and to think about and analyse issues outside their own area of expertise.
Fellows will join the Academy seeking to grow their self-awareness through monthly one-on-one sessions with a dedicated coach, with whom they set personal development objectives which they work to meet during their fellowship and beyond.
Academy fellows will have priority in participating in the ‘Leadership in the 21st Century’ Breakfast Briefings series, giving them the opportunity to discuss leadership experiences and lessons in an informal setting with acknowledged leaders from government, business, media and the non-profit sectors.
The fellows will be based full-time at Chatham House, London with the expectation that the residential fellowships will resume in January 2021.
However, working patterns will be flexible and some aspects of the program may be held online in line with safe Covid-19 working practices.
Opt-out at any time. No strings attached.
