Student Involvement

The Inclusive Growth Initiative (Inclusion, Inc.) offers the opportunity for a select number of exceptional Fletcher students to conduct original research and analysis around the world as a part of the IBGC Global Research Fellowship. The program was created in 2013 and has sent student teams into the field for immersive studies in emerging and frontier markets such as Myanmar, Turkey, Kenya, and Indonesia.

Drawing upon the deep contextual understanding of the Fletcher student body, the Global Research Fellowship (GRF) allows current students to leverage their knowledge, commitment, and creativity to engage in original research and analysis aimed at creating new market insights. Results of this research will form the foundation of a student-generated repository of knowledge on the contextual importance of emerging markets and the drivers of change and opportunity that exist there.

The GRF is unparalleled training for a global career in inclusive business:

  • Develop your Intellectual Capital: Students develop a first-hand understanding of key issues, trends, and drivers of change in a frontier market
  • Tap our Network Power: Connect with the IBGC network of scholars and practitioners worldwide, including fellows from the Council on Emerging Market Enterprise (CEME)
  • Solve Problems: Student research lays the groundwork for new approaches to inclusive growth and business through increasing the understanding of new markets for policy makers and practitioners
