Science and Technology Fellowship (STF)

International Foundation for Science (IFS) and the United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS), Japan, are pleased to announce a new call for applications to two Grant/Fellowship competitions.

This competition is in the form of an ordinary IFS Research Grant plus an additional Fellowship component, sponsored by UNU-IAS. To apply, you must fill in the IFS 1st Grant Application Form (or renewal Application Form, if you have completed an IFS Grant) as well as an additional form for the specific Fellowship. The forms are available on the IFS web. Current IFS Grantees are not eligible.

Please consult the IFS web for complete details:

Application Deadline: 30 June, 2005

The STF competition is open to all researchers who fulfil the IFS eligibility criteria.

Fellowships will be awarded to researchers that are carrying out research projects relevant for: * policy for technology transfer to developing countries under Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs); and * policy on biotechnology development and transfer to developing countries. Please note, support is available for research projects, not for development or technology transfer projects.

All applications to the APF and STF Programmes must be received by IFS no later than 30 June, 2005 in order to be considered for support.

The benefits of inclusion in the APF and STF Programmes include affiliation to the UNU-IAS and an affiliated Japanese university, one year technical supervision support by a UNU- IAS faculty member and academics from collaborating Japanese universities, and a one-month stay at the UNU-IAS in Yokohama, Japan. The cost of travel to and stay in Japan will be covered by the UNU-IAS.
