RWI offers support for individuals through annual Petrad Fellowships. Through a competitive selection process, fellows are chosen to attend a course run by Petrad in Stavanger, Norway, on petroleum policy and natural resource management.

This intensive course spanning the entire extractive industries value-chain is usually only open to senior government officials. The fellowship aims to enable fellows to immediately take their campaigns to a more technical level upon returning to their home organization or coalition and share their knowledge with their colleagues over time. By targeting leaders in the transparency movement, this program aims to quickly raise civil society's ability to engage in technical debates surrounding extractive industries.

The application process opens in early February and continues until mid-March. Selection of the applicants includes input from Revenue Watch regional and capacity building staff, former fellows and PWYP International. Successful applicants will be notified in early April.
