Asian Development Bank provides researchers and academics with an opportunity to share their ongoing or recently completed economic research in ADB headquarters in Manila. Female applicants and applicants from ADB developing member countries are especially encouraged to apply. ADB accepts applications year-round, but selections will be made on a quarterly basis.
The Asian Development Bank envisions a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty in the region. ADB assists its members, and partners, by providing loans, technical assistance, grants, and equity investments to promote social and economic development.
The program offers visiting fellows the opportunity to give a presentation or lecture on a research topic that is of mutual interest and relevance to both ADB and the visiting fellow. Applications will be evaluated based on the applicant’s background and expertise, as well as quality of research and its relevance to ADB. The visiting fellow will come to ADB headquarters and stay for a minimum of 2 working days up to a maximum of 10 working days. The timing of the visit will be agreed upon by ERCD and the visiting fellow. Visiting fellows will be entitled to a honorarium, a roundtrip tickets, accommodation, and miscellaneous travel expense coverage.
