The Global Development Research (GDR) Scholar program is accepting applications through Thursday, December 1, 2016! Tell your grad students about this great opportunity to conduct important research in developing countries and receive funding!
Graduate students and post-docs can choose from more than 400 projects related to their interests.
First, students choose projects from the catalog you’d like to work on. Each project host holds Skype interviews of interested applicants and chooses one applicant to invite to work on the project. Students use that invitation as part of their application to the GDR program. If accepted, all qualifying research, travel and living expenses will be paid!
Learn more about the program and application process. This is a lengthy application process, so students should get started now!
Selected scholars will be announced early January 2017, and funding and departure will commence summer 2017.
