Compare Fellowship 2024-2025: Call for Applications

Deadline for applications is 8 April, 2024

More details about how to apply

Compare is a leading journal of international and comparative education, publishing eight issues a year of high-quality articles on diverse issues of educational policy and practice around the world. It is the official journal of the British Association of International and Comparative Education (BAICE), which works to support activities of research, teaching and collaboration in the field. In order to maintain its significant global standing, one of Compare’s missions is to develop the diversity of its authorship, and support underrepresented groups, in light of the significant inequalities of global academic publishing. For this reason, in 2017 it established an annual Compare Fellowship, to support early career academics from the Global South in disseminating their research and scholarship to a global audience.

The fellowship will run from 1 September 2024 – 31 August 2025 and provides full financial support (including travel, accommodation and subsistence) and guidance from an academic mentor for the following activities:

  • Attending and presenting at the BAICE conference in the University of Sussex, UK, 3–5 September 2024
  • Attending the Compare writers’ workshop at the conference (a full-day course for early career researchers)
  • 1–2 week stay at an institution in the UK following the conference (to carry out library research, attend academic events, interact with colleagues and develop publication ideas with the guidance of a mentor)

While in their country of origin, the Compare Fellow will be expected to engage in the following activities:

  • Participating in e-mentoring
  • Developing an article for Compare
  • Facilitating the organisation of activities to support academic writing for other academics in their institution/country
  • Participating in Compare as a reviewer

Requirements of applicants
