World Bank is issuing a voluntary Request for Information (RFI) to accredited universities

offering master’s degree programs on development topics, noting that the deadline for submission is FEBRUARY 20, 2019 @ 11.45 PM EST

The Joint Japan World Bank Scholarship Program (JJWBGSP) has for over 30 years provided funding to financially-strapped, promising mid-career professionals from and working in developing countries who are admitted to one of a set of pre-selected master’s degree programs.  As such, a key mandate of the JJWBGSP Secretariat, which is housed in the World Bank, is to ensure that JJWBGSP offers a set of high quality / cost-effective master’s degree programs that traverse a wide range of emerging development topics.

With the goal of better understanding current market supply conditions, the World Bank is issuing a voluntary Request for Information (RFI) to accredited universities offering master’s degree programs on development topics, noting that the deadline for submission is FEBRUARY 20, 2019 @ 11.45 PM EST, and the link to the RFI announcement is provided below.

Information acquired through this RFI could help inform the JJWBGSP’s administration, particularly if the World Bank decides to prepare a subsequent solicitation (Request for Proposal) to identify a new set of master’s degree programs that would be eligible to receive JJWBGSP scholars who would begin their studies after June 2020.

Interested parties may:
