SCHOLARSHIP: 2012 Mäler Scholarship in Environmental Economics, Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics

The Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics ( is pleased to announce a new round of the Mäler Scholar competition. The institute is an international center of excellence at the interface of ecology and economics. It is based in the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, Sweden and has a small staff of researchers who work on a variety of ecological-economics issues.

The institute created the Mäler Scholarship in 2009, in honor of Professor Karl-Göran Mäler's long-standing contributions to environmental economics around the world. The scholarship is funded by a grant from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. It is intended for researchers from environmental economics networks in developing regions of the world who are enrolled in a PhD program or already have a PhD and have completed at least one network-funded research project. It allows researchers to spend up to 6 months at the institute preparing manuscripts from their existing research projects and developing new projects in collaboration with Beijer researchers. It covers travel costs to and from Stockholm and provides a monthly allowance for lodging and meals.
