With this initiative, Think Tank Fund aims at supporting up to fifteen ‘returnees’ per year to assume posts in think tanks interested in attracting young staff. With these activities, we hope to help young and talented people enter the region’s think tanks, provide additional capacity building with talented returnees getting engaged in policy-relevant research, analysis and advocacy under the guidance of experienced staff, and assist think tanks in recruiting new talent into their ranks.

The program is designed to benefit both young returning professionals and their host
organizations. It enables participating think tanks to recruit young researchers originally from the
region who recently graduated from universities in the OECD countries, including the Central
European University in Hungary. Depending on a research topic, individual programs at hosting
organizations will last up to 6 months and start from November 2014.

How to Apply?

Step 1: Interested graduates should contact the think tanks directly and negotiate the topic area,
policy product(s) and work plan for the engagement in this program.
Step 2: The potential host organizations will interview candidates, assess how their interests and
skills correspond to the profile and needs of a potential host organization, and decide whether they
are interested in working with the candidate. This decision should be clearly communicated to the
candidate well before the deadline for submitting individual applications to Think Tank Fund.
Step 3: Having been selected by the host organization, the candidate will then apply to the Think
Tank Fund. To be considered for the Think Tank Young Professional Development Program, applying graduates should submit the following documents in English (as .doc or .pdf attachments to email) by August 4, 2014 to ttf.fellowships@opensocietyfoundations.org
