Our fellowship program provides financial support, exposure to global discourse and developments in the policy landscape, and mentoring to people with disabilities from low- and middle-income countries who are actively working on issues of inclusive policy or policy research in support of the rights of people with disabilities as put forth in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

We believe that successful advocacy and policy change hinge on the ability to gather and analyze all types of data – quantitative, qualitative, legislative, financial – to provide a strong evidence base for policy change and that it is of fundamental importance that people of disabilities from low and middle income countries be at the center of these efforts.

Fellowships are given to persons with disabilities in the early or mid-stages of their career who have already begun working in the area of inclusive policy, not only as advocates, but as policy analysts and/or researchers, or for people wanting to transition to work that involves

  • knowledge building,
  • policy harmonization,
  • social accountability and
  • similar work that adds value to the advocacy efforts that are in place in their country context

We offer:

  • Mentorship to develop the fellow’s work plan and achieve their deliverables
  • Sponsorship for a week-long training on social protection policies or a similar training program
  • A fellowship grant of US$ 900 / month  to help cover the time they spend on their projects.
  • Involvement of fellows in the projects of CIP as per their interests and expertise. This will enrich the fellows experience and will offer exposure to a global perspective.
