Podcast – “In the Same Boat: Morocco’s Migration Lessons for Europe”

January 29th, 2016 in Fellowships

This year, hundreds of thousands of people crossed the Mediterranean and Europe’s eastern borders seeking refuge. But while global attention was fixed on the boats struggling through the waves, or huddled behind barbed-wire borders, little thought has been given to what happens next. Europe will soon find itself facing the dilemma of how to manage its newest residents – a challenge that Morocco has already faced.

Applications Now Open for 2016 Pardee Graduate Summer Fellowships

January 26th, 2016 in Fellowships

Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Pardee Graduate Summer Fellows Program, which offers graduate students from across Boston University an opportunity for intensive interdisciplinary research and writing on topics aligned with the broad research interests of BU’s Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future.

The Pardee Center conducts interdisciplinary, policy relevant and future-oriented research that can contribute to long-term improvements in the human condition. The Center is especially interested in rigorous analysis relating to longer-range human development. We especially encourage proposals for research that has the potential to identify actions that can be taken today to make our collective global tomorrow better. More details are available in the research section of the website.

The 10-week fellowship (May 31 – August 5, 2016) includes a financial stipend of $6,000, structured interaction with Pardee Center affiliated faculty and research fellows, and a collegial atmosphere that fosters peer support and intellectual growth. Summer Fellows occupy workspace provided at the Pardee House while they conduct independent research, and produce a substantive research paper that may be considered for publication by the Pardee Center. Fellows are expected to work at the Pardee House each Monday through Friday for the duration of the Fellowship and to participate fully in Pardee Center activities and all Summer Fellows’ events.

The Graduate Summer Fellowships are open to all Boston University graduate students. First-year master’s and early to mid-stage doctoral students, including ABDs, are especially encouraged to apply. (Students completing degrees in May 2016 are not eligible.) Research proposals that link positively to the student’s own and/or BU faculty’s ongoing research are especially desirable.

Proposals for any research topic related to the Pardee Center’s longer-range global human development mandate will be considered, especially including (but not limited to) those relating to (a) sustainability issues related to rapid urbanization, especially in developing countries, (b) issues related to large-scale global environmental change, (c) a “systems perspective” of development programs, incorporating issues related to sociology, ecology, and economics, and (d) improved understanding of how academic knowledge connects to policy decision-making at various scales (i.e. local to global). Successful proposals will clearly convey how the research is related to improving quality of life; clearly articulate how the research is relevant to the longer-range future; and explain why and how it can be completed in a 10-week period. Applications are especially encouraged from fields such as global public health, engineering, the humanities, and natural sciences.

The deadline for applications is close of business on Monday, March 14 and candidates will be notified of the outcomes in mid-April. Detailed application instructions are available here.

Questions regarding the Summer Fellowship Program may be directed to gsfellow@bu.edu.

Fellowship Details

This paid fellowship aims to bridge the gap between academia and first time international field placements for students interested in humanitarian aid, public health, and nutrition in a global setting.  Funded by USAID, the 2016-2017 fellowship will bring together eight fellows for an intensive 4 week training on the core competencies of public health nutrition and humanitarian aid.  The fellows will then continue their learning while spending eleven months working in an international public health nutrition program run by the international NGO, Action Against Hunger.  During this eleven month period, they will continue to attend workshops to further their professional development and their transition to a professional field based position will be aided through a structured mentorship program.

Application period is open January 15th to February 15th, 2016.  More information is available on the I-PHN fellowship website at www.iphn-fellowship.org.
