    Selected Fellows will work to promote early childhood development (ECD) across education, health, nutrition, social protection and other relevant sectors.Fellows will be hired as Short-Term Consultants (STC) at the World Bank for one year, with a second-year renewable, based on performance and continued work program demand.Interested candidates should submit a completed application form and resume (in English) by Friday October 11th 5 pm Eastern Standard time.
