How to Join the Fellowship Program

The GLOPAC Fellowship Program is restricted to those working for financial regulatory agencies in emerging countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin and South America.

Step 1.

Nomination of Candidates

Between 5 and 6 months before the start of an official GLOPAC Fellowship Program term, the GLOPAC Secretariat send out requests for nominations for Program participants to our partner agencies around the world. Each nominee submits a curriculum vitae and a list of their areas of interest, and GLOPAC staff conduct individual interviews to learn more about each nominee and their background. All nominations must be made through the official contact of our partner agencies; GLOPAC does not accept unsolicited applications from individuals.

Step 2.

Candidate Screening and Interviews

Once the nominations from partner agencies have been received, GLOPAC staff hold online interviews with each candidate. The interview includes an introduction of the Program, the role of the Visiting Fellows, and a discussion of what each nominee hopes to learn from the Program. After the interviews are completed and reviewed, GLOPAC staff contacts its partner agencies to inform them whether their nominee was accepted or not.

Step 3.

Visa Application and Introductory Presentation

If the Program schedule contains in-person training in Japan, all qualified candidates will need to obtain a short-term trainee visa. The visa application process takes 2 or more months to complete. Participating candidates are also required to prepare an introductory presentation on what the banking, securities, or insurance market looks like in their own country. These presentations are meant to help the Visiting Fellows understand the market situation in other countries and their peers’ areas of interest. If the Program is conducted entirely online, there is no need for a visa application, and the Program schedule will be changed accordingly.

Step 4.

Getting Here and Starting the Program

Approximately 1 to 3 weeks before the Program begins, GLOPAC will send a detailed term schedule to our new Fellows along with their flight’s e-ticket information and instructions for meeting the Program staff at the airport. On the first day of the Program, the staff will individually review each participant’s housing arrangements, commute to FSA, and basic everyday routine. On the fellows’ second day in Tokyo, they all gather at FSA to meet each other and to officially start the Program.

Through the GLOPAC Program, Visiting Fellows gather from around the world to pursue a shared interest in financial regulation.
