As a result of COVID-19, AL will not be accepting North-South Fellowship applications this year. If you are interested in applying for a fellowship in your home country please get in touch with the relevant Country Director on our contacts page.
The Accountability Lab Fellowship is the leading, multi-disciplinary program for students interested in transforming development outcomes through a focus on accountability, transparency, and open governance.
Imagine using your design skills to help technologists create their latest tool for civic participation in Nepal. Or drawing on your creativity to work with rappers on a popular anti-corruption song in Liberia. Or adapting your communications experience with the media to broadcast a TV show about honest government officials in Mali.
The Accountability Lab Fellowship is a 10-week, immersive learning experience in Nepal, Pakistan, Liberia, or Mali. The fellowship provides structured training and knowledge-building, hands-on experience relevant to your background and skills with some of the best social change-makers in these countries, as well as continual feedback to track progress and impact. As a fellow, you will be a full-fledged member of the Accountability Lab team, with the opportunity to design, shape, and implement programs and systems.
Currently, we have local teams in Kathmandu, Islamabad, Monrovia and Bamako. All of these teams operate independently while working to accomplish the Lab’s vision of a more accountable and just world. Roles vary between country teams depending on that organization’s specific needs at that time.
