Successful applicants  will have the opportunity to collaborate directly with the project, network and participate in a series of online fellowship events.

There will be Fourteen fellowships offered by the OERRH:

  1. There are eight (8) Linked fellowships. These are open to researchers who are affiliated with one of our collaborating projects.
  2. There are four (4) Open fellowships. These are aimed at researchers with identified expertise relevant to OER practice and who can help to supplement the research activity targeted at each of the four educational sectors.
  3. There are two (2) Specialist fellowships. These fellowships will be focused on evaluating the work of the OERRH. They will bring an additional perspective to plans in the early stages and on progress in the later stages.
