The Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation is accepting applications for the fourth round of International Climate Protection Fellowships which are offered to prospective leaders from transition and developing countries who work on climate protection and resource conservation issues in NGOs (as well as in the academica, business or government).
The fellowships provide an opportunity for selected candidates to come to Germany for a year to conduct a project dedicated to the sharing of knowledge, methods and techniques together with a host. This encourages the creation of a network in which German and foreign experts collaborate on a sustainable, international basis to combat climate change and its global consequences. The fellowships are funded under the Federal Environment Ministry’s International Climate Protection Initiative. There are 15 fellowships available for this.
Applications must be completed online. The completed application form including all the additional documents required must be submitted online by the closing date which is 1 December 2012.
