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. ​

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).
