Policy Fellowship

ASD offers a four-month public policy fellowship every year. The objective of the fellowship program is to engage mid-career policy researchers in a structured, scientific process to provide intellectual support in undertaking and to communicate policy research in critical areas of social and political relevance in Nepal. It also aims to provide policy advocates with skills essential to engage with existing public policies, offer alternatives and flag up new issues.

During the fellowship period, fellows are trained on public policy paper writing, mentored and provided with different platforms to engage in discussions related to their paper.
ASD began its policy fellowship program as pilot program in 2012. Altogether twelve individuals were provided with the Fellowship in 2012.
