A pilot round of fellowships is offered for five fellows, with two selected from Africa and three from Asia. Each fellow will be matched with a mentor at a host institution, based on compatibility between the fellow’s qualifications and research interests, and the mentor’s areas of expertise and current projects. The fellow will be expected to contribute to the mentor’s projects and the mentor will provide research guidance and support to the fellow in project output preparation.
The fellow will spend a total of four weeks in residence at one of the host institutions. Travel and accommodation for this fellowship will be covered. Also, Fellows are expected to attend the May 2016 Adaptation Futures Conference in Rotterdam. Fellows’ cost of attendance and conference fees will be covered as part of the fellowship.
Mentorship will be provided for an additional six months upon the fellow’s return home. Fellows are expected to produce a research product that may include a publication in an academic journal; OR they may produce an output that can be used in policy or practice arenas for designing, implementing, or influencing adaptation solutions.
The application deadline is 20 November 2015.
