CRDF is pleased to announce a new initiative to promote research in the field of renewable and sustainable energy. CRDF’s Junior Scientist Energy Research Fellowship is a three-month opportunity for Eurasian Junior Scientists to travel to the United States and work with a U.S. specialist to pursue a project that aims to reduce worldwide dependency on non-renewable energy resources.
The program’s focus is to provide Junior Scientists with the opportunity to frame an issue and pose a research project in the following specific areas:
These fellowships are designed to support new collaborations, as well as to promote pre-existing relationships. Fellowship applicants must be residents of Kazakhstan, Russian Federation, Ukraine, or Uzbekistan.
Applicants must secure a relationship with a researcher in the U.S. who will serve as a host and mentor. Because this competition is directed toward students and early-career researchers, CRDF may be able to provide initial contacts to applicants who request assistance in locating an appropriate U.S. specialist. Applications will be evaluated through CRDF’s peer-review system.
Each research fellowship will provide up to USD 7,500, including per diem stipends, travel funds, accommodation, and related research expenses.
