We are pleased to announce seven new fellowship appointments for the GEM Report for this year.
The GEM Report Fellowship programme began in 2019. This year, the new Fellows are exploring diverse issues of importance to the GEM Report’s monitoring agenda: equity, climate change and technology, the latter of which could feed into the 2023 GEM Report.

Technology integration in the Cambodian higher education system in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
Eam’s and Song’s fellowship research aims to understand the responses of Cambodian higher education institutions and their lecturers to the COVID-19 pandemic and their sustainability six months and two years after the outbreak in the country.
The GEM Report Fellowship programme was launched in 2019. It aims to strengthen the evidence base on education, build research capacity in education, and reinforce the links between education research, policy and practice. The seven new Fellows join five Fellows in 2021, three in 2020 and four in 2019. We are grateful to the Open Society Foundations for their support to the Fellowship programme and are excited to read about the findings that our next round of Fellows discover in their work.
