Scholarship & Fellowship Programs

The World Bank Group’s Scholarship and Fellowships Programs are vehicles for knowledge sharing and capacity building in the developing world. The Programs provide opportunities for graduate and postgraduate studies leading to masters and doctoral degrees in development-related fields for mid-career professionals from eligible developing countries.

The WBG manages three such programs:

-Robert S. McNamara Fellowships Program (RSM)
-The Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program (JJ/WBGSP), sponsored by the Government of Japan.
-The Japan Indonesia Presidential Scholarship Program (JIPS)

Please note that the WBG Scholarship Programs do not sponsor undergraduate studies, distance learning programs, short-term training, conferences, seminars, thesis writing, research projects, and fields of studies not related to development. All these requests will not be considered.
