Applications are invited for the Fulbright-Kalam Climate Fellowship. Launched in September 2014, the scheme aims at building long-term capacity to address climate change-related issues in India and the US.
The doctoral research fellowships under this scheme are designed for Indian scholars who are registered for a PhD at an Indian institution. These fellowships are for six to nine months.
The postdoctoral research fellowships are designed for Indian faculty and researchers who are in the early stages of their research careers in India. Postdoctoral fellows will have access to some of the finest resources in their areas of interest and will help build long-term collaborative relationships with US faculty and institutions. Their duration is for eight to 12 months.
The selected candidate will have affiliation with one US host institution during the grant. All applicants must identify institutions for affiliation and correspond in advance with potential host institutions.
Applicants must have conducted adequate research in the relevant field, especially in the identification of resources in India and the US. They must be registered for a PhD at an Indian institution at least one year prior to August 1, 2016.
For the postdoctoral fellowships, applicants should have been awarded a PhD degree within the past four years. Application deadline for 2017-2018 awards is July 15, 2016.
The programme begins in August-September 2017. The United States-India Educational Foundation administers the Fulbright-Kalam Climate Fellowship on behalf of both the governments.
