NRGI 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 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.
