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 28 March 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.
