2012-13 Fulbright NEXUS Regional Program

Fulbright Program Announcement: 2012-13 Fulbright NEXUS Regional Program for the Western Hemisphere

The Fulbright Regional Network for Applied Research (NEXUS) Program will bring together a network of junior scholars, professionals and mid-career applied researchers from the United States and other Western Hemisphere nations for series of three seminar meetings and a Fulbright exchange experience. Scholars will spend up to one year engaged in collaborative thinking, analysis, problem-solving and multi-disciplinary research in one of three inter-related topics of regional significance: Science, Technology and Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Sustainable energy.

Projects focusing on climate change adaptation strategies, and/or public policy focused research ventures that examine strategies to cope with climate variability, including extreme events, are particularly welcome.

Fulbright NEXUS Scholars will conduct individual and team-based research projects, integrating perspectives from multisectoral stakeholders, to generate knowledge-based, policy-oriented solutions and implementation models at the national and regional levels.

CIES will host a webinar to talk about the NEXUS Program on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 at 2:00 pm EST.  CIES staff and current Fulbright NEXUS grantee, Ruth Browne, will provide an overview of the program and answers any questions you may have.  To register, please click here.

The application deadline for applicants is June 15th, 2012.  Applicants must be U.S. citizens or apply through a Fulbright office in the Western Hemisphere.  For more information, visit our website at http://www.cies.org/NEXUS/ or email us at kdewindt@iie.org or jsilva@iie.org.
