The Oxford Global Priorities Fellowship is a combination of the former Forethought Foundation Global Priorities Fellowship and the Early Career Conference Programme. It exists to create a community of early-career researchers interested in global priorities research and to support their career development.

The fellowship aims to support graduate students (Master and PhD) and early-career post-doctoral researchers in philosophy and economics in contributing to global priorities research, with a particular focus on issues of relevance to improving the well-being of future generations over the very long term.

Fellows will participate in the Global Priorities Fellowship Programme. The programme takes place in Oxford for four weeks in the summer of 2023 (12 June – 7 July) and participants will have the opportunity to develop a new research project under the guidance of a supervisor and to learn more about global priorities research in the course of developing their project. Each participant will focus on developing a research proposal, outlining a plan for a research project on a topic of central importance to the question of how to do good effectively. Topics for these research projects may be taken from GPI’s research agenda, although participants are also encouraged to pursue other projects that are consistent with GPI’s vision and mission.

The programme will end with a workshop at which participants present these proposals to one another and receive feedback on their plans. Participants are encouraged to continue their proposed course of research following the programme's end and to meet with their supervisor sometime during the course of the next year. Participants who complete their research project or a closely related research project inspired by their experience in the programme will have the opportunity to present their research at GPI’s June workshop the following year. A prize will be awarded for the best such paper. All participants will be invited to a reunion event to coincide with the June workshop in the following year. This will give participants a chance to reconnect with GPI staff and their Fellowship cohort, see and discuss the research that has been done over the past year, and meet the next Oxford Global Priorities Fellows cohort.

Unless they are no longer pursuing graduate study, all fellows will also receive a stipend of GBP 5,000.
