Selection Procedure

The NDC Research Fellowship Selection Committee meets in the month of October each year, to review all the applications received. A staff member of NDC Research Division may even contact prospective candidates for further clarification of their applications before that date, but applicants should be aware that a final decision on their application will only be made at the Committee meeting in October. The Committee may select up to five candidates for fellowship positions in the following calendar year: two candidates from PfP, two from MD partner countries and one from OMC/PAG countries. Selected candidates will be notified in writing immediately thereafter and they will receive the latest version of the NDC Fellows' Manual to prepare themselves for their stay at the College in Rome. Due to the large number of applicants, only candidates selected for the Fellowships will be contacted.
