The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is pleased to announce the 2012 USDA Global Research Alliance (GRA) Fellowships for Columbia, Ghana, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, and Vietnam.
USDA, in cooperation with USAID, will support the participation of Alliance member developing countries in the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases through the Global Research Alliance Fellowships. Competitively selected research fellows will work side-by-side with U.S. scientists on climate change mitigation research for up to 3 months. These fellowships will be hosted by USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and/or U.S. universities active in the targeted research areas. U.S. scientists who serve as mentors to the fellows will travel to the fellows’ country for up to 10 days to continue their collaboration on climate change mitigation research. USDA will select U.S. mentors and host institutions for each fellow.
The 2012 Global Research Alliance Fellowships are administered by USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). Fellowships will be funded by the USAID or FAS based on availability.
Targeted Research Areas:
- Developing Tools for Greenhouse Gas and Carbon Sequestration Assessments
- Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions Intensity in Crop Production Systems
