FELLOWSHIPS: Climate Change and African Political Stability
The Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS) program will offer up to three pre-doctoral fellowships for the 2011-2012 academic year. The CCAPS pre-doctoral fellowship program aims to stimulate the development of the next generation of researchers and thought leaders on the topic of climate change and political stability in Africa.
Pre-doctoral fellows are encouraged to present their research within and outside the Center, collaborate on papers or projects with other fellows and faculty, participate in the research activities of CCAPS, attend and take an active role in CCAPS and Strauss Center seminars and conferences, and immerse themselves in the greater University community during their appointment.
CCAPS will consider applicants working on a broad range of topics related to climate change, political stability, and security in Africa. Suitable topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Climate change vulnerability in Africa
- Potential impacts of climate change on political stability or security in Africa
- Strategies for addressing climate change challenges in Africa
