Global Fellows in Sustainable Development Program
March

http://www.studentaffairs.columbia.edu/csa/blog/new-opportunity-global-fellows-sustainable-development

In order to understand the dynamics of globalization and the interconnectedness of our social and natural systems, students are encouraged to venture out of the classroom to experience and research these issues in the field. The Global Fellows in Sustainable Development Program enables The Earth Institute, Columbia University, through a generous gift, to support field research for current Columbia University undergraduates studying sustainable development, either in the special concentration or the major. These experiential opportunities will provide students with an opportunity to hone skills and explore questions raised in the classroom. The experiential learning piece of the curriculum provides an opportunity for student research and contextual application of classroom education.

The grant supports this experiential learning piece so as to provide an opportunity for students to undertake fieldwork, research assistantship or internship opportunities off campus but related to their sustainable development studies. This program will ensure that the challenges presented by globalization are not abstract ideas, and that students are able to gain practical experience in the critical areas of sustainable development they have studied.

Harriman Institute – Undergraduate Fellowship Program
November

http://www.harrimaninstitute.org/courses/undergraduate_student_support.html

The undergraduate fellowship program of the Harriman Institute at Columbia University is open to Barnard College, Columbia College, and General Studies students. This program is designed to provide research support on a competitive basis to juniors and seniors who have a serious interest in the post-Soviet and/or East-Central European regions. It is expected that students will use the fellowship to assist them in researching and writing their senior theses, or to complete an equivalent major research project.

Successful candidates may receive up to $2500 to offset their field research expenses in the region, with the expectation that the research will be conducted over the 2011/12 winter break. Fellows will have the opportunity to attend all Harriman Institute events for the 2009/10 academic year, and will be required to present the results of their own research at a public seminar hosted by the Harriman Institute in April of 2012.
