Call for Applications: Mentoring for Research Programme climate resilience, environmental sustainability
The International Support Network for African Development (ISNAD-Africa) hereby invites applications for its Mentoring for Research Programme (MRP) from students pursuing various doctoral, master's and bachelor's degree programmes in African Universities. The mentoring programme is being implemented as an initiative of ISNAD-Africa to help Africa raise a new generation of researchers and professionals who will use their knowledge and expertise to facilitate clean energy transition, environmental sustainability and climate resilience in African countries. Successful applicants will be those who will be conducting their research on sustainable energy, environment and climate change topics in their various disciplines (Technology, Sciences, Arts, Law, Social Sciences, Environmental Design and Management, Agriculture, Health Sciences, ICT, among others), therefore, students from all disciplines are welcome to apply. The mentoring programme will help students (mentees) complement the supervisory support they will receive from their institution-based supervisors, among other benefits.
All shortlisted applicants will be opportune to attend a 6-week online training to be hosted by the Clean Energy Solutions Center, Colorado, United States. Upon completion of the training, submitted applications and performances at the online training will be assessed and used for final selection of mentees for the programme. Mentees will be opportune to receive one-to-one mentoring support from experienced researchers and professionals in our Mentors' Community from world-class organizations and institutions such as World Bank, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Chatham House, Harvard University, among international organisations and institutions.
Please see more details about the programme and the application procedure on the website (https://isnad-africa.org/mentoring-for-research/). The deadline for Applications is December 22 (11:59GMT)
We will also like to invite experienced researchers and professionals across the globe with well-developed expertise in all areas of sustainable energy, environment and climate change in all disciplines to join our mentors' community (https://isnad-africa.org/projects/).
