PROVIA Visiting Fellowship Programme for African and Asian Fellows, 2016

PROVA, in partnership with START, introduces a
new and exciting opportunity for young professionals and researchers to engage
in PROVIA through the PROVIA
Visiting Fellows Programme
. This announcement is for the
programme’s inaugural round, and invites young professionals and researchers
from Africa and Asia to apply.

A pilot round of fellowships is offered for five fellows, with two selected
from Africa and three from Asia. Each fellow will be

matched with a mentor at a
host institution, based on compatibility between the fellow’s qualifications
and research interests, and the mentor’s areas of expertise and current
projects. The fellow will be expected to contribute to the mentor’s projects
and the mentor will provide research guidance and support to the fellow in
project output preparation.

The fellow will spend a total of four weeks
in residence
at one of the host institutions. Travel and
accommodation for this fellowship will be covered. Also, Fellows are expected
to attend the May 2016 Adaptation FuturesConference in Rotterdam. Fellows’ cost of attendance and conference
fees will be covered as part of the fellowship.

Mentorship will be provided for an additional six months upon the fellow’s
return home. Fellows are expected to produce a research product that may
include a publication in an academic journal; OR they may produce an output
that can be used in policy or practice arenas for designing, implementing, or
influencing adaptation solutions.
