University Data Fellows
The World Bank has streamlined university partnerships through use of a standard framework agreement, designed to cover many different kinds of student projects and engagements. As specific projects and collaborations are initiated, these are added to the signed framework agreement.
World Bank staff are invited to submit project proposals to university partners, who then select and match projects to students / student teams. Proposals will cover a wide range of public service and infrastructure challenges in emerging economies. All will have a geospatial and/or data science component suitable for graduate-level data and computer science students.
While students’ time are covered by their university, Bank staff will reimburse students and their advisors
for any expenses directly associated with their project (e.g., travel).
