Fellowship structure

A fellow’s time will be split between three key areas: 

  • Completing
    a personal research project of the fellow’s own design undertaken with
    the guidance of a Chatham House expert, (approximately 50%).
  • Contributing
    to the ongoing research activities of their host research team and
    other Chatham House teams as appropriate (approximately 20%).
  • Participation
    in the Academy’s Leadership Programme (approximately 30%). The
    Leadership Programme is a key part of the Academy fellowships. It
    provides fellows with the opportunity to develop their knowledge,
    skills, network and self-awareness, which they can then draw upon in
    their future careers as effective leaders in their field. 

Leadership Programme

All
Academy fellows participate in, and contribute to, the Academy’s
Leadership Programme which encompasses the following components:

  • Intensive induction week
    Academy fellowships begin with an intensive five-day induction week at Chatham House to become familiarized with the elements of the fellowships and the Leadership Programme, meet their host research programme, and have their first personal development coaching session.
  • Weekly discussion seminars
    These sessions highlight the principal substantive and skills-based areas the Academy believes vital for informed and effective international leadership. Fellows are expected to contribute to and learn from one another’s experience.
  • Global Introductions off-site visits
    These half-day visits take place approximately every two months and allow fellows to meet with leaders and senior decision-makers from a variety of sectors. Previous visits have included the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Department for International Development, Standard Chartered, and Thomson Reuters.
  • Leadership workshops
    Every two months fellows participate in half-day workshops focusing on specific aspects of leadership such as ‘Leadership in a new role’ and ‘Fostering innovation and entrepreneurship’
  • Project presentations
    Fellows present updates on their research projects which help fellow develop presentation skills, provide a valuable forum for peer-review and to think about and analyse issues outside their own area of expertise.
  • Personal development coaching
    Fellows join the Academy seeking to grow their self-awareness through monthly one-on-one sessions with a dedicated coach, with whom they set personal development objectives which they work to meet during their fellowship and beyond.
  • Media training
    Fellows learn how to interview effectively on television and radio, culminating in a mock interview from which they receive feedback on their presentation style and any areas of improvement
  • ‘Leadership in the 21st Century’ Breakfast Briefings
    Academy fellows will have priority in participating in the ‘Leadership in the 21st Century’ Breakfast Briefings series, giving them the opportunity to discuss leadership experiences and lessons in an informal setting with acknowledged leaders from government, business, media and the non-profit sectors.
  • Career mentors
    Fellows have the option to have an external career mentor during their fellowship. Mentors are independent of the Academy and Chatham House and are picked individually for each fellow based on their career objectives.
