Fellowship Application


Please submit your application below (combining your documents into one PDF file):

  • CV, including grades (or an additional academic transcript)

  • One academic writing sample that best represents your work. The sample does not have to be related to global priorities research.

  • Short research proposal (around 500 words). This proposal is not binding, and we expect you may work on other projects in the future

  • Personal statement, describing your motivation for working in global priorities research, and why you are a good fit for the Forethought Foundation (around 500 words)

  • Names of 2-3 references, at least one of which must be an academic supervisor [note: you do not need to submit a letter of reference; we will get in touch with the referees directly to answer a couple of questions at the last stage of the application process, which should take them less than 5 minutes to answer]

  • Optional: Links to blogs, websites, etc.

  • For any questions, please get in touch.
