DPU Fellowship Schemes

The DPU promotes the view that learning by doing is a core principle to promote socially minded development practitioners. This ethos underpins all of our MSc teaching, and has also influenced the development of our exciting fellowship schemes.
Our fellowships are aimed at DPU alumni and provide the opportunity to develop experience in the field and to build upon the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the MSc study.
In addition, fellowships are based at institutions that we have close relations with. The work undertaken during the fellowships are valuable in supporting our partner organisations in their operations.
We offer the following fellowships, though they are not running currently. Future updates will be posted here.

DPU/ACHR/CAN Fellowship Programme

As part of a long-standing partnership between the Asian Coalition of Housing Rights (ACHR), the Community Architects Network (CAN) and The Bartlett Development Planning Unit (DPU), the DPU Alumni fellowship program aims to offer experience and on-the-job-training for junior development practitioners throughout Southeast Asia. This partnership is based on the shared institutional purpose of fostering people driven development while advocating for planning for socio environmental justice.
