CFA: Fung Global Fellows Program, Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies

Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Each year the Program selects six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. Fellowships are awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who are expected to return to their positions, and who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but who are still early in their careers.
 
During the academic year 2014/15, the theme for the Fung Global Fellows Program will be "Global Diffusion." The Program seeks applications from scholars developing new, innovative ways to study global diffusion processes. The objects of diffusion could be specific modes of social categorization (such as "race" in census forms), principles of legitimation (such as democracy), government policies (such as minority quota systems, forms of conflict (such as revolutions), or cultural practices (such as Tango dancing or marrying "in white"). We especially encourage analytically oriented approaches that identify recurring patterns and mechanisms through rigorous comparison of multiple cases or quantitative analysis, with broad geographic (preferably trans-continental) coverage. Researchers working on all historical periods of the modern age, all regions of the world and of all disciplinary backgrounds in the social sciences and humanities are encouraged to apply.
 
Applications are due on November 1, 2013 (deadline 11:59 p.m. EST). To be eligible, applicants must have received their Ph.D. (or equivalent) no earlier than September 1, 2004. Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of a candidate's proposed research project, the relationship of the project to the Program's theme, the candidate's scholarly record, and the candidate's ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the Program. For more information on eligibility requirements and the application process itself, see the Program's website at http://www.princeton.edu/funggfp/

The Transsolar Academy Fellowship 2013 - "Connect Ideas – Maximize Impact"


Transsolar Academy 

Vision 

The symposium "Connect Ideas – Maximize Impact" taught us about the importance of the "majority world" and “education” on our path for higher impact.

Therefore, we are inviting 10 young graduates primarily from the "majority world" to connect us to parts of the world where we have had almost no impact in the past. Our goal is to gain knowledge and learn about the possibilities of climate engineering in parts of the world where we believe the greatest changes will take place in the near future. We hope to increase impact by connecting ideas through our TS Academy fellows returning home and applying their knowledge.

Program Overview 

The Transsolar Academy offers a one-year fellowship in climate engineering covering tuition, travel, room and board.
