Fellowship & Internship Program

Fellowship & Internship Program

IPRI's Fellowship Program

In order to foster goodwill and North-South and South-South communication of cultures and ideas, IPRI supports academic exchange programmes between regional and international researchers and think-tanks.
The Program provides an opportunity to IPRI to draw on the expertise of scholars and professionals and develop linkages with other institutions. The Fellows work in their areas of expertise while enhancing their understanding of Pakistan’s cultural, political and socioeconomic contexts through engagement with IPRI scholars and other local centres.
Given the short-term nature of the exchange, research work includes conducting activities such as:
• Delivering seminars or workshops
• Developing an academic paper
