Global Research Fellows Program
The Global Research Fellows Program offers high-value programming and a supportive learning community for students conducting international research or research in the US on global themes.
Fellows benefit from a suite of offerings that help them maximize the benefits of UAF-funded research:
- Tailored workshops and networking events increase students’ preparation for research.
- Virtual interactions during the research period facilitate peer-sharing and support.
- Post-research opportunities encourage students to translate their experience into next steps.
Fellows also qualify for conference funding of up to $250 to widen their professional networks.
Application and Requirements of Participation
Admission to the program is selective. Interested students must submit an application on LyonNet by 7 April 2014. Applicants in the process of applying for UAF funding, and students with a UAF award in hand, will be considered. UAF funding provides $3000 for domestic research projects and $3600 for international.
