2012-2013 Robert S. McNamara (RSM) International Fellowship Program

The Robert S. McNamara Fellowships Program was established in 1982 by a resolution of the Executive Directors to “award fellowships for full-time study or research at the postgraduate level in fields related to economic development, to be carried out at a recognized institution in a Bank member country other than the applicant’s home country”. In December 1993, through a resolution by the Executive Directors whereby the Program was restructured, fellows were allowed to conduct their research in their home country. The award amount was fixed at US$7,500 to cover research costs through the twelve months fellowship period.
