Scholarship at Harvard University 2012-2013

Scholarships available at Harvard University 2012-2013 | Harvard University Scholarships

The Academy Scholars Program identifies and supports outstanding scholars at the start of their careers whose work combines disciplinary excellence in the social sciences (including history and law) with a command of the language, history, or culture of non-Western countries or regions. Their scholarship may elucidate domestic, comparative, or transnational issues, past or present.

The Academy Scholars are a select community of individuals with resourcefulness, initiative, curiosity, and originality, whose work in non-Western cultures or regions shows promise as a foundation for exceptional careers in major universities or international institutions.

Academy Scholars are appointed for 2 years by the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies and are provided time, guidance, and access to Harvard University facilities. They receive substantial financial and research assistance to undertake sustained projects of research and/or acquire accessory training in their chosen fields and areas. The Senior Scholars, a distinguished group of senior Harvard University faculty members, act as mentors to the Academy Scholars to help them achieve their intellectual potential.

Terms

The competition for these awards is open only to recent Ph.D. (or comparable professional school degree) recipients and doctoral candidates. Those still pursuing a Ph.D. should have completed their routine training and be well along in the writing of their theses before becoming Academy Scholars; those in possession of a Ph.D. longer than 3 years are ineligible.

Each year four to five Academy Scholars are named for two-year appointments. Academy Scholars are expected to reside in the Cambridge/Boston area for the duration of their appointments unless traveling for pre-approved research purposes.

Post-doctoral Academy Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $56,000, and pre-doctoral Academy Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $28,000. This stipend is supplemented by funding for conference and research travel, research assistants, and health insurance coverage. Some teaching is permitted but not required.

Applications are welcome from qualified persons without regard to nationality, gender, or race.

ERASMUS MUNDUS Master’s programme in Industrial Ecology

Read more: http://scholarization.blogspot.com

Industrial Ecology is an emerging interdisciplinary field combining natural, technical and social sciences in a systems view at scale levels from the global to the local. Its core concept is the analogy between processes in nature (biosphere) and processes in society (techno-sphere). Evolution has resulted in a highly efficient use of materials and energy in biosphere systems: waste from one process is a resource for another. In today’s society, resources are exploited, producing unusable waste streams and release of pollutants to soil, water, and air, leading to complex sustainability problems. Society might take lessons from the biosphere to solve these problems.

The MIND programme (ERASMUS MUNDUS Master’s programme in Industrial Ecology) is a new two-year programme with 120 ECTS, offering a unique Industrial Ecology education for 15 Third-country and 10 EU students per edition. Those 25 students can study at two or three universities of the MIND consortium, representing seven universities.

The objective of the MIND programme is to train students

  • to conduct industrial ecology analyses of such complex sustainability problems,
  • to design industrial ecology solutions for these problems and
  • to develop implementation strategies for those solutions identified.

Therefore, MIND is in the heart of the EU needs of the “Europe 2020 strategy”, because due to the current sustainability problems and imminent EU and global transitions in energy systems, food systems etc. there is a great need for Industrial Ecology trained persons that have a grasp of the complexities of the field of sustainable development.

Scholarships

For study year 2011/12, nine Category A and eight Category B students plus one student from the region “Turkey/West Balkan states” can be awarded by the European Commission with a scholarship; i.e. there will be 18 scholarships for 25 students. For details of that scholarship, please see the following table from the Erasmus Mundus Programme Guide.

European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis

Read more: http://scholarization.blogspot.com/2010/12/master-scholarship-in-agricultural-food.html

The European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis aims at providing a high quality education in designing and assessing public policies targeted to the agricultural and food sector as well as the rural environment.  This European Master responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.  The European Master offers a two-year academic curriculum with integrated and advanced theoretical, methodological and empirical courses in economics and quantitative methods as well as in agricultural, food and environmental sciences, agricultural and trade policy, environmental and natural resource policy, rural development policy and agribusiness management and market analysis.  To connect theory and methodology to practice, a problem solving project is developed and presented as a master thesis at the end of the two-year curriculum.

The European Master is jointly organised by five leading European educational and research institutions:  the Corvinius University of Budapest (CUB) in Hungary, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Sweden, the Rheinische-Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität Bonn (UBonn) in Germany, the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Spain.  These five partner universities are recognised worldwide for the quality of their educational programme and scientific achievements in agricultural, environmental and economic sciences.  The required 120 ECTS credit points are structured into three blocks:  a minimum of two semesters of studies (55 ECTS) at a first partner university, as well as two semesters of studies (60 ECTS) at a second partner university, and two joint summer schools (5 ECTS) at partner universities.  The language of instruction and examination is English for most of the courses in three partner universities while it is either French at UCL or Spanish at UPC for most of the courses.  The Master degree is awarded as a double degree from the two home and host universities.

Recipients of this European Master are qualified to understand the fundamentals of public policies oriented to the agricultural and food sector, rural areas and natural resources, develop and use quantitative methods to perform rigorous socio-economic and environmental assessment of these public policies, and provide sound and relevant policy recommendations for a more sustainable development of this sector and rural areas.  They are qualified to take responsibilities in international, national and regional agencies, non-governmental organisations, consultancy firms, professional organisations and private companies.

This European Master is accessible to candidates holding a bachelor degree or a recognized equivalent academic degree with a minimum of 180 ECTS or 3 years university study from an accredited institution, with sufficient undergraduate training in economics and agricultural or environmental sciences, with an excellent scholastic average, and with fluency in English but also French or Spanish if attending either UCL or UPC respectively.

Main area: Social sciences (including economics), cultural sciences
Second area: Agricultural and forestry sciences
Third area: Geography, earth and environmental studies

At the end of the course, graduated students will be awarded a double degree.

Student scholarships

  • Erasmus Mundus scholarships for non-European students (Category A)

The Erasmus Mundus programme of the European Union awards a limited number of individual scholarships to non-European applicants to the European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis. When non-European candidates apply for admission to the AFEPA European Master, they can also apply for this scholarship programme using the same application form.  If non-European candidates applying for this scholarship programme are admitted to the AFEPA European Master but are not offered an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, then admitted candidates cover the tuition fees and all other expenses with funding from an alternative scholarship programme or private sources.

For a non-European applicant, the scholarship amounts to:

a total contribution to travel, installation and any other type of costs € 8,000
a contribution to cover the tuiton fees of the European Master € 3,000 per semester
a monthly allowance € 1,000 per month

You will be in contact with Égide, which is responsible for managing and monitoring your scholastic stay in France, for the duration of your grant. In order to become familiar with your rights and obligations, we invite you to review the practical details that follow. Feel free to contact Égide if you need further information.

I – YOUR GRANT
1/ Duration of Eiffel scholarship
Master’s course :

•The Eiffel scholarship is granted to cover a set number of months in order to help prepare and pass the diploma, provided students have met the academic obligations for each academic year.

•Excluding language training, where applicable, the scholarship runs for up to 12 months for a master’s 2 course, up to 24 months for a master’s 1 course and up to 36 months for an engineering diploma course.

•A preliminary language training course of two month maximum duration can be paid for non French- speaking students at the request of the French host training institution in order to allow them to adjust to the training course in the best conditions. Students will receive their Eiffel allowances during this period.

•The centre submitting the application must clearly state the overall programme duration, including any compulsory practical components in France or elsewhere.
PhD course :

•Eiffel scholarships are granted for a period of up to ten months.

•Language instruction simultaneous with the main course may be available for the disciplines of law and political science, on request from the French host centre. It is not available for science and economics courses.

•Split courses: If approved by the selection commission, law and political science students may split the ten months into a maximum of three sessions lasting three to four months, over a maximum of three years, with students returning to their countries of origin between sessions.

•Centres are invited to inform Égide immediately of any event liable to delay graduation.

2/ Amount of Eiffel scholarship
•The Eiffel programme does not cover tuition fees, though the higher education centres concerned are invited to apply the best possible financial conditions to Eiffel scholarship-holders.

•Enrolment fees at state-run higher education centres are waived for students on French government scholarship programmes such as this.

•Master’s courses : Eiffel scholarship-holders on Master’s courses receive an allowance of €1,181. In addition, the programme meets various expenses including return trip, health insurance and cultural activities. Scholarship-holders might also be eligible for additional accommodation allowance.

•PhD courses: Eiffel scholarship-holders on PhD courses receive an allowance of €1,400. In addition, the programme meets various expenses including return travel (single return trip for law and political science students on multiple stays), health insurance and cultural activities. Scholarship-holders might also be eligible for additional accommodation allowance.

•Payment: The grant is paid monthly by bank/postal transfer into a French account opened by the grantholder at the start of the course. Bank account details should be notified to Égide.

II – OTHER SERVICES
1 – Supplemental housing allowance
•Private accommodation: If you are accommodated outside of the university residences, in a place of residence that has been chosen by our services, you can benefit, at your request, from an additional housing allowance. You will just need to show the receipt for rent payment, mentioning your name and address, as well as your landlord’s name and address.

•Amount of housing allowance: The amount of allowance, whatever your “académie” ( local education authority) , has been set at 115,00 euros per month.

•Special case of students of Paris and the Paris region: since October 1st, 2003, the students who have been accommodated by Egide in an approved and registered residence cannot benefit any longer from the 115,00 euros housing allowance. Indeed, their rent is partly subsidized by the Eiffel program. The amount of this support varies depending on the residence.

•Suspension of housing allowance: If you enroll in an educational establishment abroad and do not retain your housing in France, payment of the housing allowance is suspended.
2 – Travel
Journey to France:
•The journey to France is financed by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for scholarship holders residing outside France at the time of selection. Travel ticket issue is handled solely by Égide.

•Special case: For PhD students in law and political science, authorized upon selection to split their scholarship across several stays in France, a single return trip will be financed.
Holiday journeys are not financed.
Return trip:
•The return trip is financed by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and arranged by Égide to precise rules. Details should be sought from Égide several months before your departure.

•Entitlement to repatriation runs for one year after the end of your course.
3 – Study or long-stay research stays outside France for scholarship holders on master’s or engineering courses
•The Eiffel scholarship may finance one trip outside France if compulsory for obtaining the qualification for which the scholarship was granted. An application should be submitted by the student, along with a covering leter from the course coordinator giving the following details:

◦The reason for the travel;
◦The place of study or research (name and address of the host organization, name of the party in charge at the organization);
◦The duration of the stay (exact departure and return dates).

•Important: Compulsory mobility to the country of origin of the scholarship holder will lead to a suspension of both grant and additional allowances.

•Internships: only compulsory internships required for obtaining the diploma may be covered under the Eiffel scholarship.

◦Before the course starts you should produce a motivated letter from the host centre specifying the duration, location and remuneration.
◦For remunerated internships, payment of your allowance during the internship will depend on the amount of remuneration you receive. You will be asked to produce a copy of the internship agreement with the host centre, indicating the amount of the remuneration. If you fail to produce this, Égide may suspend your allowance.

Coverage under students’ health insurance scheme:
•If you meet the following conditions
◦You are under the age of 28 on October 1 of the current academic year; and
◦You are enrolled in an institution of higher education approved by the health insurance system,

•Eiffel grant holders are obliged to attend and to participate in all the activities of their educational program, and in particular to sit for all examinations and to comply with all the rules and requirements of the school in which the grant holder is enrolled.

•The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reserves the right to suspend payment of the grant if the grant holder engages in activities that are incompatible with the objectives of the Eiffel program.

•Scholarship-holders on Master’s courses should provide Égide with an enrolment certificate for the current year, at the start of each university year.

•Scholarship-holders on Master’s courses should inform Égide of all internships, practical courses and journeys outside France.

Yale World Fellows Program 2011

The Yale World Fellows Program seeks applications from mid-career emerging leaders who have distinguished themselves within their own professions, regions, countries, or at an international level. Successful applicants uniformly possess the extraordinary qualities of mind and character that strong leadership requires. Candidates for the Fellowship must demonstrate themselves to be driving forces for action or effective catalysts of change. In significant ways and in significant arenas, each must show promise of a career trajectory of increasing responsibility and impact. Yale World Fellows are selected from a wide range of fields and disciplines including government, business, nongovernmental organizations, religion, the military, media, and the arts.

Criteria for selection include:

•An established record of extraordinary achievement and integrity;
•Commitment to engagement in crucial issues and to making a difference at the national or international level;
•Promise of a future career of leadership and notable impact;
•Special capacity for critical, creative, entrepreneurial, and strategic thinking;
•Likelihood to benefit from participation in the Program and to contribute to global understanding at Yale;
•Commitment to a rigorous program of activities, to full-time residence at Yale for the duration of the program, and to mentoring students and speaking frequently on campus.

Stipend and Living Arrangements in New Haven

In addition to underwriting all program and educational costs, Yale provides Fellows with housing and a travel allowance, as well as a stipend of $32,500 to cover living expenses. The World Fellows Program does its best to assist with arrangements for Fellows who are joined in New Haven by a spouse or dependent minors for the duration of the Program.

Having a family accompany a Fellow to New Haven for the duration of the Fellowship is a decision that should be made only after serious consideration and discussion with the Program staff. While the families of some Fellows have lived full-time in New Haven for the four months of the Program, the majority of World Fellows with families – especially those with children – find it considerably easier and more convenient to have their family members come for shorter visits. Spouses and partners with career flexibility do often come to New Haven for longer stretches, and it is sometimes possible for them to be included in a small number of World Fellows activities. More complicated is the important decision regarding whether or not to bring children. Placing school-age children into schools in New Haven is a complex and competitive process. Program staff can provide information and some assistance in making school arrangements; however, there is no guarantee that schools in the Yale University area will have the necessary openings. Placing younger children into daycare centers can also present challenges. Fellows wishing to bring young children to New Haven must have full-time care arrangements for them. Fellows are occupied for many hours each day, including many evenings. In all cases, the Fellow must consider the intensive nature and significant demands of the Program, as well as the impact that long days and evenings will have on a partner and/or children.

Eligibility and Selection

Process

Nominations and applications for the Yale World Fellows Program are solicited from around the world. A Fellowship candidate must be a citizen of and reside in a country other than the United States. Preference may be given to candidates who have not had extensive educational or work experience in the United States, particularly at Yale. Candidates should be in the mid-career stage, at least five and typically not more than twenty years into their professional careers, with demonstrated work accomplishments, and a clear indication of future contributions and excellence. An excellent command of English is essential. Fellowship candidates must complete an online application and submit three confidential letters of recommendation. Regional panels review semifinalist candidates, and a final selection committee aims to assemble a Fellowship group that is diverse, geographically balanced, and representative of a wide range of professions, talents, and perspectives.
