Fellowship: awards up to USD 8,000 per fellowship
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is currently inviting applicants for its Urban and Regional Policy Fellowship Program 2016, with an aim to support research proposals that explore strategies for enhancing equity and inclusion in transatlantic cities.
The Fellowship provides opportunities for practitioners and policy-makers working on economic, environmental, and social challenges at the urban and regional levels.
The goal of the Urban and Regional Policy Fellowship Program is to allow fellows to expand their professional expertise, networks, and ability to effectively solve local challenges through a focused transatlantic learning experience.
- GMF welcomes applications from U.S. or European mid-career professionals with an interest in gaining an understanding of how similar urban and regional challenges are approached in a policy context other than their own and an ability to translate lessons learned into policy action;
- Applicants must be policymakers or practitioners in state or local government, leaders from the private sector, or representatives of non-profit and policy organizations and have at least seven years of experience in their field.
- GMF awards up to USD 8,000 per fellowship;
- Fellowship funds cover the costs incurred or directly related to carrying out the project and should be used for travel, lodging, meals and incidentals (including internet access, phone, research materials, and transportation).
How to apply?
The deadline for submission of pre-applications is 17 June 2016. Successful pre-applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Final selection and award will be made on or before 26 September 2016.
