Student profile

UNU-MERIT and its School of Governance welcome researchers from a variety of backgrounds and experiences to participate in the GPAC² training programme. We are looking for fellows with a Master’s degree who have strong academic records, professional and/or volunteer experience, affiliation with academic research and a special interest in policy analysis. We welcome fellows from all over the world with a wide variety of cultures and disciplines. The programme is tailored to synergise the various backgrounds.

Participants in the GPAC² programme have external work responsibilities, leaving them less time for PhD research. Ideally, the PhD candidate’s employer offers support by allocating time and allowing the candidate to incorporate their studies into their work (by providing data, support, related assignments and the like).
