CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: HUMAN SECURITY FELLOWSHIPS
The Center for Unconventional Security Affairs (CUSA) is pleased to announce our 2012-2013 Human Security Fellowship call for nominations. Our Human Security Fellowships are intended to support students or organizations that conduct important work on topics such as: human rights, sustainable development, development of alternative energy sources and pro-poor technologies, medical and public health interventions, environmental change, peace building and conflict resolution. We especially encourage nominations in fields of medicine, the natural sciences, engineering, and information technology whose work has applicability to reducing human insecurity. Nomination Deadline: Wednesday, April 3, 2013 by 5pm
Nominations are open to all UCI groups, undergraduate and graduate students (including full time masters and doctoral students, medical students, and postdoctoral scholars). Applicants are responsible for ensuring that they are eligible to receive fellowship funds. Awards are typically given in the amount of $500.
Nominations should include the name of the person or UCI group, their contact information, your contact information (if nominating someone else), and a short (200-500 word) essay on how this person or group has been working to address human security challenges.
Information packets should be sent to Center for Unconventional Security Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5:00 pm on Wednesday, April 3, 2013. Fellows will be chosen by a committee of CUSA affiliates and external reviewers and announced on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. Fellows should be available for award presentation on the evening of Wednesday, April 24, 2013.
