The 2017-2018 application process has closed. Stay tuned for another opportunity September 2018.
The Florida Climate Institute’s Collaborative Climate Research Fellowship Program aims to provide opportunities for UF faculty to broaden their climate-related research scope and develop collaboration among the international faculty community. This fellowship helps foster the development of innovative, interdisciplinary research projects and publications that will help find solutions to the global, complex challenges facing society.
This year, we are partnering with the UF International Center’s Global Fellows Program to better connect our FCI climate fellow with a cohort of other early-career researchers.
Funding: A seed grant of $4,000 provides faculty an opportunity to lay the groundwork for conducting international climate-related research. Faculty must use these funds to cover expenses to travel to collect field data, to meet with international scholars, to access resources not available at UF, and to support any activity that advances research abroad.
Eligibility: The program is open to all UF faculty who have a climate-related research assignment, regardless whether they are on a tenure track. The program is designed to support young scholars, those within the first 10 years of their academic career. In evaluating proposals, it is important for faculty to demonstrate that they have well thought out and clearly defined international research goals.
