Applications are invited for the British Association of International and Comparative Education (BAICE) Compare Fellowship 2020/2021. The fellowship seeks to support early career academics from the Global South in disseminating their research and scholarship to a global audience. The fellowship will run from December 1, 2020 – November 30, 2021.
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.
