|Climate Protection Fellowship with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany
|18 November 2015
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is now accepting applications for the International Climate Protection Fellowship Program. Up to 20 fellowships will be awarded to prospective leaders from non-European transition or developing countries, who are active in any of the following areas: scientific, engineering-based, legal, economic, health-related or social aspects of climate change. The young climate experts will come to Germany for a year to work alongside a host of their own choosing on a research-related project. The closing date for applications is 1 March 2016 and the fellowship will begin on 1 March 2017.
We should be very grateful if you would disseminate the information in your networks, as you may know of suitable candidates from abroad, or hosts potentially interested in cooperating with dedicated young leaders. An information sheet on the program (in German, English, Spanish and Portuguese) can be downloaded here. If you have any questions about this program, please contact us directly via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The fellowships are funded under the Federal Environment Ministry's International Climate Initiative. Please note that anyone who has already received sponsorship from the Humboldt Foundation is not entitled to apply for this fellowship.
Thank you very much for your support.
